Welcome to Monte's Favorite General Education Model

The table below crosswalks the requirements of the otter model with the new curriculum model, as well as the courses that meet both. If you have satisfied a requirement in the otter model with other courses, you will not have to repeat that area. Please direct any questions you have regarding requirements left to fulfill to your major advisor.

Students who completed lower division Area A in Otter Model but finish in new General Education Program may use Otter Model A1 to meet A1 and A2/3 to satisfy both A2 and A3 with only 8 units by exception. Students who completed any area within GE or all of GE have completed that area, even if they switch catalogs.

Students who have completed GWAR prior to Fall 2019 will most likely stay on their original catalog.

Students who completed Advanced Placement Tests, IB, or other exams for credit can find the GE area satisfied and scores required for credit here: https://csumb.edu/planning/credit-exam Please note that AP US Government does not cover the requirements for US 3, only US 2.

*HDEV 351: Lifespan Development: Transition and Change (4 units) may count for UDGE and E OR D in Fall 2019 only. May count for HDEV 351: Lifespan Development: Transition and Change (4 units) where required.
