breadth requirements. Students admitted to the College of Arts and
Sciences must also complete the CAS breadth requirements.

Can students use courses from their majors to complete University breadth requirements?
Maybe. Students with ONE major may NOT use courses from that major to
satisfy University breadth. There is a policy for students who are
double-majors or double-degree candidates. You may read that policy HERE.
Can students use University Breadth Courses toward the Arts and Sciences Breadth Requirements?
Yes! Up to 3 credits from each of the University Breadth Requirement
categories may be used to simultaneously satisfy the CAS Breadth
requirements. See a visual representation of how this works.
Please be aware, while University Breadth courses may satisfy the CAS
Breadth requirement, it is not alway true that CAS breadth courses may

What is the minimum grade requirement for College of Arts and Sciences breadth requirements?
For students who are admitted in Fall 2010 or later, the minimum
grade requirement for College of Arts and Sciences breadth is C-.
For students who were admitted to a degree program PRIOR to Fall

regardless of when the course is taken. For example, a student who was
admitted in Fall 2009 can utilize the minimum grade of D- for breadth
even if the approved breadth course is taken in a semester after Fall
2010. For any approved breadth courses that students who were admitted
to UD prior to Fall 2010 take between their admitted term and their
graduation term, the minimum grade for CAS breadth will be D-.
Can students use courses from their majors to complete College of Arts and Sciences Breadth requirements?
I've noticed that some courses have changed from one group to another. What does that mean for students?
Our policy is to honor the course as it was categorized when the
student took it. If, for example, a student took ARTH 153 in Spring 2010
as a Group B course, we will honor that as a Group B. However, since
the course became a Group A course in Fall 2010, any student who takes
it in Fall 2010 (or later) may use it only as a Group A. Similarly, the
student who took the course in Spring 2010 while the course was a Group B
course cannot now elect use the course as a Group A.
