Appeal to Apply Elective Credits to the Hunter Core
Students may appeal to apply credits for elective courses to general education requirements. The course(s) in question must satisfy the specified learning outcomes. A learning outcome is a specific or general goal that a student achieves in a course. These goals may be applicable to a variety of courses, such as evaluating evidence to apply in argument, or specific to a subject, such as articulating the impact of technologies and scientific discoveries on the contemporary world.
To make a successful appeal, it is necessary to show how the course provided the basis for the required learning outcomes through the structure, content, and assignments. Details about the required learning outcomes are available for each area:
