General Education Common Course Listing

Academic Year 2019-20

Board Policy III.N, Statewide General Education, establishes the general education matriculation framework. In December 2018, the State Board of Education instituted the implementation of a common course-indexing list for a core set of freshman and sophomore level curricula (100 and 200 level courses) within the GEM framework. Common course indexing includes four common components: common course prefix, common course number, common course title, and common GEM discipline area designation. Development of a common course numbering system provides greater transparency of course articulation and seamless transfer for Idaho’s students and provides greater consistency for equivalent courses to be recognized with similar GEM designation across all institutions.
