To find out whether a course fulfills a distribution requirement, consult the distribution list for the academic year in which you have taken (or will take) the course.

General Education Curricula

All Lehman students must fulfill General Education requirements in order to graduate. The General Education curriculum you must fulfill depends on the semester you matriculated (began taking classes toward your degree) at Lehman College. Your General Education curriculum requirements can also vary depending on your student status upon entering Lehman (e.g., entering freshman, transfer student, second bachelor's degree student). For transfer students, the number of transfer credits you had upon entering Lehman can also affect your General Education requirements.

All continuing students may choose to opt into the Fall 2013 curriculum. To learn more about how these requirements compare to your existing requirements, please schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor in the Academic Information and Advisement Center in Shuster 280.
