By default, all undergraduate students at Indiana University Bloomington are required to complete the campus-wide GenEd requirements prior to graduation with a baccalaureate degree, but the GenEd Common Ground requirements may be waived for two specific groups of transfer students:
- Students who have previously completed a bachelor's degree at a regionally accredited college or university in the U.S. are not subject to IU Bloomington GenEd Common Ground requirements. Sequential second-degree students should confirm their status with the Office of the Recorder in their school.
- Students who earn the Indiana Statewide Transfer General Education Core (STGEC) milestone at another Indiana University campus or another Indiana state public institution of higher education prior to matriculation at Indiana University Bloomington are not subject to IU Bloomington GenEd Common Ground requirements.
Completion of the STGEC does not add to, subtract from, or alter any other degree requirements, including school requirements, major requirements, minor requirements, or requirements for an undergraduate certificate.
For more details, see the STGEC page.
