  • Sequence I: HIST 101 - World Civilizations to 1500 and HIST 102 - World Civilizations  to Present​
  • Sequence II: HIST 130 - US History 1500-1877 and HIST 131 - US History 1877-Present ​

If this is the case, submit an ARR Correction Form. Example: courses that might not automatically meet requirements: Chicano Studies 101 and 102 (CS 101 and 102) or American Indian Studies 101 and 102 (AIS 101 and 102) etc…
