These requirements are effective for students entering GAP after June 1, 2000. Items VII and VIII affect students that entered the GAP in Fall 1999 and parts of items VII and VIII affect all GAP students immediately.
If you wish to nominate a course for inclusion in the GAP curriculum, please petition the GAP Executive Committee, 150c BLSC, firstname.lastname@example.org.
These courses or their equivalents should either be on a student’s transcript or taken during the first year at MU.
Pick one from each of 2 areas. At least one course must be graduate level. You must receive a B or better for the course to count toward the GAP requirement. Courses not in italics may be used to fulfill GAP requirements but will not count toward the Graduate School’s requirement of 15 hours at the graduate level. Reaching the 15-hour requirement should not be a problem because courses under II, III, and VI all count.
Pick any two. At least one course must be graduate level. You must receive a B or better for the course to apply the course toward the GAP requirement.
