GEP Special Topics Course Offerings

With CUE approval, a special topic course that meets the objectives for a GEP category and/or GEP co-requisite may be offered using one of the established GEP special topics shells.

See CUE Guidelines

A special topics GEP shell may be piggybacked with a departmental prefix but only students registered under the GEP course prefix will receive GEP credit. A GEP special topic is limited to one offering and must be offered for a letter grade. A request for a second offering requires approval by CUE. A course offering as a GEP special topic should not be advertised as such until CUE has approved.

Course Scheduling

CUE must approve the use of a GEP special topic offering before scheduling of the course can occur in SIS. Scheduling of GEP Special Topics is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Courses & Curricula.
