Can I use a GE course to satisfy more than one requirement for my degree?

Yes. The GE courses below will also fulfill a requirement in another GE area, such as C, D, or E.

In addition, for some majors, a GE course can be used to fulfill both a GE requirement and a requirement for that particular degree program. This is called “double counting.”
