GE Submission Guidance

The GE submission form should be submitted together with the course syllabus to the Dean of Curriculum and Educational Effectiveness at tnazarenko@westmont.edu by the published deadline. The submission form or the course syllabus should address how exactly the course meets ALL certification criteria approved for a respective GE area. Please consult the GE Committee Combined Document for certification criteria of the GE area you'd like your course to be certified for.

If you are applying for the GE credit for off-campus courses which reflect the modified version of either existing on-campus GE-certified courses or previously taught off-campus courses, please distinguish the level of your course modification and identify all introduced changes in a one paragraph statement within your Submission Form.
