Upper Division Requirements
If you started attending GVSU before Fall 2014, this is how you fulfill your Upper Division requirements:
If you first attended GVSU in 2006 or earlier and are returning, the catalog under which you started is no longer valid and you must choose a new one.
Catalog Change Policy
Students with a GVSU catalog prior to the 2014-15 catalog year can take 2 Issues, 2 Themes, or 1 Issue and 1 Theme course to fulfill their upper-level General Education requirement. If you update your catalog year to 2014-15 or later to pursue a newly offered major or minor, any Themes courses you have taken will count toward your new Issues-only General Education Program requirements (Fall 2014 and on). You may not take a Theme course after you change catalog years. These exceptions will be placed on your record when your catalog update request is received in the Records Office.
