Modified General Education Program

Students with Written and Oral Proficiency in a Language Other Than English

The policy at New Paltz is to allow a waiver of the Foreign Language requirement in instances where a student has had significant, documentable education in a country where English is not the language of instruction. A student who can demonstrate through appropriate documentation competencies in oral, reading and written expression in a language other than English may also apply for a waiver. Approval must be obtained through the Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Department.

Students Majoring in Engineering

For students majoring in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering, a modified General Education requirement applies and is reflected in students' progress reports.
