About General Education in Summit College*

All terminal associate degree programs currently within Summit College will contain 18 hours of general education course work (3 hours of which must be English) to be selected from the areas and courses designated in the table below. This course work must be approved by the General Education Advisory Committee and, therefore be accepted as part of the state-wide Ohio Transfer Module. Students are encouraged to select approved course work from Summit College.
