    University general education requirements
    University
    Kansas State University has established requirements for a university general education program. See ``University General Education Requirements'' in the Degrees section of this catalog.

    College
    As required by the university, students must complete at least 18 credit hours of approved university general education courses, at least 6 credit hours of which must be at the 300 level or above. The college further requires that at least one university general education course must be taken from each of the three areas of humanities, social sciences, and computational or natural sciences. Transfer students requiring only 6 hours of university general education courses should take at least one course from each of two discipline areas.

    Courses used for university's general education credit may not be in the student's major field without the approval of the college and the university.

    Within the above guidelines, any approved general education courses offered by any college at Kansas State University may be used to satisfy these requirements. University general education courses approved as basic requirements in the College of Arts and Sciences (see ``Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Sciences'' following this section) may be used to satisfy simultaneously both university general education and College of Arts and Sciences basic requirements. Courses from other colleges may be approved as basic requirements in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students should consult their advisors for up-to-date lists of approved courses.

    Departmental
    Individual departments within the college may propose exceptions or additions to the college requirements noted above. Students are advised to check with their major departments to see whether such is the case.

    In course descriptions, university general education courses are marked with a University General Education course. For more information about university general education requirements, see the Degrees section of this catalog. For a current list of approved university general education courses:
