Quarter v. Semester General Education

Quarter v. Semester General Education Tool Disclaimer

The Quarter v. Semester General Education tool is continually being updated with course information. Please check back frequently for up-to-date information. 

The Quarter v. Semester General Education tool is not meant to replace the University Catalog. This tool was built using the 2017-18 General Education Catalog. Work with your academic advisor to ensure that the General Education courses you are taking count toward your degree requirements.

Tool Last Updated: 8/21/18 at 6:15 p.m. 

Explanation of Course Equivalency

If a quarter course in the table has gray boxes, this means that the semester course didn't count for General Education before or it's new. 

If a semester course in the table has gray boxes, this means that the quarter course equivalent can't be taken for General Education credit in semesters. 

Some courses have moved between subareas in the semester redesign. Those courses are noted in the tool.

Work with your academic advisor if you have questions about a particular course. If you have any questions about this tool, contact the Bronco Advising Center at bac@cpp.edu.

8/21/18 Update

Over summer 2018, the labeling of GE Area C received an update. For students on semester curriculum, C2 is now C2a, C3 is now C2b and C4 is now C3. The courses within these sections have not changed, so this does not affect you.
