Course Information

Once a new or revised course has been approved by the Curriculum Review Committee (CRC), the course can be submitted for certification in the General Education (GE) program or to fulfill other graduation requirements such as the GWAR, American Institutions or SF State overlays requirements. Courses submitted for baccalaureate requirements outside of the major, minor or GWAR are reviewed and approved by either the Lower Division Certification Committee (LDCC) or Upper Division Certification Committee (UDCC). Courses being considered for the GWAR requirement are submitted to the Committee on Written English Proficiency (CWEP) for approval.
