HIST101/102 transition to HIST111/112

Western Civilization to World Civilization
Beginning Fall 2016, HIST111 (World Civilization I) will be offered in place of HIST101 (Western Civilization I) and HIST112 (World Civilization II) will be offered in place of HIST102 (Western Civilization II). For students who have not yet completed general education core, major or minor requirements of HIST101 or HIST102, HIST111 will be the automatic substitute for HIST101, and HIST112 will be the automatic substitute for HIST102. However, please note HIST111 is not an option for grade replacement for a previously completed HIST101 attempt, and HIST112 is not a option for grade replacement for a previously completed HIST102 attempt. Students seeking to repeat HIST101 or HIST102 for the purpose of grade replacement (with regard to the cumulative GPA calculation), will need to do so this Summer (2016) at Huntingdon College. These courses are not considered duplication of credit, so for example, a student who completed HIST101 is permitted to take HIST111.

Addendum to Catalog General Education (Core) Requirement Options related to Mathematics Distribution

General Education (Core) Mathematics Distribution Courses
As of April 13, 2016, MATH171 (Introduction to Statistics) is permitted for use for all students for application toward the Mathematics Distribution requirement of the General Education Core Curriculum. This permission is granted retroactively to students who matriculated under catalogs prior to 2016-17.

Addendum to Catalog Requirement Options for 2013-14 and 2014-15 Catalogs

General Education (Core) Literature Distribution Courses
Beginning Fall 2015, ENGL 202 (Survey of Literary Genres) is permitted for use for all students for application toward the Literature Distribution requirement of the General Education Requirement Note: ENGL 202 (Survey of Literary Genres) and ENGL 104 (English Composition II) or its equivalents, is no longer considered duplication of credit beginning Fall 2015.

Catalog Requirements prior to 2013-14
Below are the guidelines that should be applied regarding the College's Core Requirements for students who:
The courses are no longer being offered:
ENGL 103
ENGL 104
PACT 103
REL 101
REL 102

The viable substitutions for these courses are:
ENGL 103 - you may take ENGL 105, but may not use the repeat policy to affect the cumulative GPA.
ENGL 104 - you may take ENGL 106, but may not use the repeat policy to affect the cumulative GPA.
PACT 103 - you may take ENGL 105 or PACT 301, but may not use the repeat policy to affect the cumulative GPA.
REL 101 - you may take REL 105, but may not use the repeat policy to affect the cumulative GPA.
REL 102 - you may take REL 106 or REL 233 (as these courses constitute a duplication of credit), but may not use the repeat policy to affect the cumulative GPA for either. Additionally, if a student under the previous core (which requires REL 101 and 102) decides to use REL 233 to satisfy the REL 102 requirement, the student may NOT also count the REL 233 course as an upper level Religion class in regards to satisfying the remainder of the Religion/Bellingrath Morse requirement.

NOTES:

Prior Core Transitional Guidelines

Below are the guidelines that should be applied regarding the College's Core Requirements for students who:

Values Inquiry and Meaning I


Three courses are no longer being offered beginning Fall 2004:
LASM 101
LASM 102
RHET 101

The viable substitutions for these three courses are:
LASM 101 - you may take either REL 101 or REL 102.
LASM 102 - you may take either REL 101 or REL 102.
LASM 101 and LASM 102 - you must take both REL 101 and REL 102.
RHET 101 - you must take ENGL 103.

In each of the above cases, you may use the College's grade replacement policy (as indicated in the email correspondence from President West on 11/20/03).

NOTE: If you successfully completed (grade of "D" or higher), the three aforementioned courses, you may not enroll in REL 101, REL 102, ENGL 103 or ENGL 104. In addition, unless you need (or are required) to take REL 101, REL 102, ENGL 103 or ENGL 104 as described above, you will not be permitted to enroll in these courses in the near future as these four courses are required for the incoming freshman classes, and there are simply not enough sections to cover additional students.
