Breadth Requirement FAQ

Who is required to complete University breadth requirements?

All students admitted to a University of Delaware undergraduate degree program in Fall 2010 or later are required to complete University breadth requirements. Students admitted to the College of Arts and Sciences must also complete the CAS breadth requirements.

What is the minimum grade for University breadth?

The minimum grade for University breadth is a C-.

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 satisfy the University Breadth requirement. Make sure that you select from the correct breadth list to satisfy your requirement.

For students who were admitted to a degree program PRIOR to Fall 2010, the minimum grade requirement for CAS breadth is D-. This is true 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?

Yes!

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.
