In order to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from FIU, students must take a minimum of two Global Learning (GL-designated) courses.  A Global Learning course counts toward the graduation requirement only if taken once it has been granted GL designation.

Freshmen starting Summer B 2010 or later must take:

  • 1 Global Learning Foundations (University Core Curriculum) course
  • 1 Global Learning Discipline-Specific course

Transfers and Re-admitted students starting Fall 2011 or later:

  • Those who enter FIU with 60 or more credits and/or who meet UCC requirements prior to entering FIU (e.g. those with an AA from a Florida public institution) must take:
    • 2 Global Learning Courses, at least one of which must be a Discipline-Specific course.
  • Those who enter FIU with fewer than 60 credits and do not meet UCC requirements prior to entering FIU must take:
    • 1 Global Learning Foundations (University Core Curriculum) course
    • 1 Global Learning Discipline-Specific course

Note:  Transfer courses may not be used to meet this FIU requirement.   All Global Learning courses must be taken at FIU.
