W is the code to indicate course that satisfies University Writing across the Curriculum requirement.
GWS, GQ, GN, GA, GH, and GS are codes used to identify General Education requirements.

Students must complete three (3) credits of United States Cultures (US) or International Cultures (IL) as part of General Education.  These may also meet other degree requirements.


Academic Advising Notes:
Students should consult with an adviser when scheduling courses.  RAPs (Recommended Academic Plans) do not replace the LionPATH Academic Requirements Report (Degree Audit). 

The degree audit is the only official record for evaluating whether a student is meeting program requirements.  See your adviser prior to scheduling each semester. 

Note: If a student's plan is to move into the Bacccalaureate (Bachelor of Science in Information Sciences and Technology) degree program, it is recommended to utilize electives for General Education or major requirements in consultation with an academic adviser.
