*Note: We plan our course schedule 5 years in advance in order to have unique course offerings available each semester.

For specific courses, see General Education Requirements in the current University Catalog.

The Faculty Senate on December 18, 1989, adopted the General Education Committee’s recommendation to grant an exception from the general education requirements as stated in this current catalog for the BSCTE degree candidates and permit these students to meet the requirements for graduation by meeting the general education requirements listed in the 1984-86 PSU Catalog, on page 31, with an additional 16 hours of general education electives.

Students enrolled as on-campus students are required to meet the 2005-2007 University Catalog general education requirements. This policy was reaffirmed by the General Education Committee on October 15, 2004, and the Faculty Senate on November 22, 2004.
