Previous Experiences

Many students have prior experiences that can have an impact on their General Education requirements, and/or their major requirements. Whether you are a freshman or a transfer student, your high school experiences or other college experiences can be helpful while completing requirements. For example, if you satisfactorily completed Advanced Placement exams, your scores may result in General Education requirement fulfillment and credit hours, and in some cases, specific course equivalencies. The following resources will help explain how your previous experiences apply to University requirements.
