Academic Regulations & Procedures
General Education Requirements
General education requirements refer to requirements set to ensure that all students are exposed to a wide range of subjects and methods. The Academic Catalog describes Carleton's general education requirements in the section "Academic Programs." Certain courses do not count toward fulfillment of the general education requirements because they do not satisfy the intent of the policy. Refer to the general education "areas" noted in the Academic Catalog following each course description. Prematriculation courses, advanced placement credits, independent study/reading/research, and credit by examination cannot be used to fulfill general education requirements. Courses taken to fulfill specific graduation requirements must be passed with a grade of S or C- or better.
