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.
