General Education Courses: Enrolled in January 2019 Through June 2021

In addition to TECEPs and courses, credit in general education areas may be earned through other non-college developed exams.

General education courses are organized into four main categories. Some courses can be used to satisfy requirements in more than one category but each course may only be used once in a degree. TESU has an institutional requirement that all students take SOS-110 to fulfill the Information Literacy requirement. You are encouraged to work with an academic advisor to plan your general education requirements.
