Additional Notes

General education courses are interchangeable; students may choose the general education courses they wish to take in any given semester based on preference, availability, and academic goals.

Students enrolled in, or hoping to enroll in, majors in the College of the Liberal Arts are expected to attend the University Park campus once they have earned a total of 60 credits. No more than 91 credits earned while enrolled at another Penn State College or at another institution may be applied toward degrees granted by the College of the LIberal Arts. A minimum of 24 of the credits related to the primary area of study stipulated under "requirements for the major" must be completed at University Park. Senior or capstone courses required for the major must be completed at University Park.

Scheduling patterns vary according to course offerings.

Both US (United States Cultures) and IL (International Cultures) courses must be completed within the degree requirements; these courses may not be used to fulfill the Other Cultures requirement.
