For Faculty

GE certification requires that faculty describe how GE Learning Outcomes (GELOs) will be taught and how student learning of GELOs will be assessed. This information will be requested in the Courseleaf course form when the GE box is selected in the form. GELOs can be found at the link below.

GE certification requests are accepted only in the Fall semester, and only go into effect in Fall terms. Revisions are often requested, so review can take more than a year depending on how quickly revisions are addressed.Please read the FAQ below for guidelines on writing a successful GE proposal.

Courses are reviewed for GE certification by either the Lower Division Curriculum Committee (LDCC) or the Upper Division Curriculum Committee (UDCC). These Senate committees have faculty representatives from all colleges.
