General Education Certification Forms

Note that GE Forms supplement but do not replace ordinary course forms. So,

  • If this is a new course, a C Form needs to be filed together with the appropriate GE form;
  • But, if this is an existing course which is not being changed, only the appropriate GE form needs to be filed (no other forms are needed);
  • If this is an existing course which is being changed, a C-2 Form needs to be filed together with the appropriate GE form;
  • If this is the first offering of a special topic course for which GE credit is being sought, a T Form needs to be filed together with the appropriate GE form.
