Students Majoring in Engineering
Students majoring in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering follow a modified General Education program based on the New Paltz GE program in effect at the time of matriculation. In all cases, modifications meet or exceed SUNY's minimum General Education requirement and are reflected in students' progress reports.
Students with Written and Oral Proficiency in a Language Other Than English
New Paltz will waive the World Languages (previously "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 Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
