When a student registers for a General Education modularized course, the student must complete all of the courses in that series to fulfill General Education category requirements, e.g., ECO 101 - 3 credits meets the Social Interaction category requirement. If ECO 101 has three modules, ECO 1011, 1012, and 1013, all three ECO 101 modules must be completed before the Social Interaction category requirement will be fulfilled. The student cannot take three modularized courses from three different parent courses to meet the general education category requirement, e.g., ANT 1011, ECO 1011, and PY 1101.
