SUNY General Education Requirements

The SUNY General Education Requirement (SUNY GER) is the 30‐credit requirement for all SUNY baccalaureate, A.A., and A.S. degree recipients, which supports academic excellence as well as student choice, mobility, and degree attainment by expecting students to demonstrate achievement of SUNY‐wide learning outcomes.

Students matriculating in fall 2015 or after must complete 30 credits of SUNY General Education courses that are distributed among at least seven of the 10 SUNY content categories. Mathematics and Basic Communication must be among the seven categories. Exceptions to this policy will be noted on the appropriate academic program description page.

Identify JCC courses that meet requirements for each of the General Education categories. Meet with your advisor or a counselor to review these courses as they apply to the SUNY General Education Requirements.

Contact the coordinator of Academic Advising with any questions.
