General Education Substitutions

Your school or college will decide if specific Experiential Global Learning courses can be used to fulfill General Education requirements.

 

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS)

Students should get pre-approval through CLAS Academic Service Center to determine if the courses you are planning to take on your program could count as General Education courses. In order to do a pre-approval request you should email clasasc@uconn.edu. Please complete the Substitution Request Form found on the CLAS webpage. If the course has already been approved as a substitution, you still need to apply for the substitution by filling out the form. If the course has not been approved, you need to send a syllabus along with the completed form.

 

NEAG School of Education

Education majors should make an appointment with Ann Traynor to discuss and review course substitutions for general education requirements.

 

College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources

Students meet with Meagan Ridder in the Academic Programs Office to determine if program coursework could count as General Education courses.  Please come prepared with a course description and copies of all syllabi. To make an appointment with Meagan, please use Nexus.

School of Engineering students should contact Whitney Losapio, Undergraduate Programs Office, Engineering II (EII) Building 304 to discuss and review possible course substitutions for general education requirements. You may reach out to her at whitney.losapio@uconn.edu or make an appointment on Nexus. Please come prepared with a course description, copies of all syllabi, and, if appropriate, any emails detailing prior approval of the course(s).

 

School of Business

Business majors should make an appointment with Brandy Nelson, Office of Undergraduate Advising, BUSN 248, to discuss and review possible course substitutions for both University and School of Business general education requirements prior to program participation. You may reach her at undergrad@business.uconn.edu or by making a phone appointment at 860-486-2315. After returning from the program and once all courses have been posted, students must submit a Substitution Request Form along with an unofficial transcript, a course description and syllabus, and, if appropriate, copies of any earlier e-mails, etc., indicating prior approval of the course.
