General Education Requirements for the A. A. and A. S. Degrees

SUNY Ulster faculty have adopted the General Education requirements of the State University of New York (SUNY). In part, this is to provide a seamless transition from SUNY Ulster to a SUNY four-year institution. Students are required to take one or more courses carrying at least 3 credits from 7 of 10 Knowledge Areas and one course from each of 2 Skills Areas. Specific courses currently offered by SUNY Ulster that will satisfy each of these areas are listed below. Students should check the up-to-date listing at www.sunyulster.edu.

At SUNY Ulster, students in the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degree programs must complete 21 of the required 30 credits as a condition of graduation. Students must complete a minimum of five categories, including the required mathematics and basic communications categories, and can select a maximum of two courses from any category.
