Coleman Common on the University of Akron Main Campus

GenEd Core

After careful examination of the GenEd Core pilot program and consideration of input from various constituencies, the University administration is recommending to the Board of Trustees that the program be halted at the end of this Fall 2016 semester.

Board approval of the recommendation is pending at the December 7, 2016 meeting.

Courses previously offered within the GenEd Core program may be offered by their respective academic units as deemed necessary, but students will be charged the standard credit hour rate.

Currently, only fourteen students have registered to take a course through the program in Spring 2017, and they will be "held harmless" from a cost standpoint.
