New Quest Course - Permanent

All Quest 1 and Quest 2 courses must first obtain a temporary approval for General Education and Writing designations from the General Education Committee before being offered. To request a "permanent" designation, quest courses must first have been given "temporary" approval.

Addition of a permanent Quest/General Education, or Writing Requirement designation may only be requested for existing courses or proposed courses that have already been approved by the University Curriculum Committee (i.e., SCNS approval may be pending). Modification or removal of a General Education or Writing Requirement designation may be requested at any time.
