Documents Concerning General Education Certification/Approval
The General Education Course Certification file below will be updated at the end of each semester--but just as the General Education website itself, which is formally subordinate to the information in the Minot State University Catalogue, the Course Certification file is subordinate to the official file kept in the Registrar’s Office. It thus serves as a good general guide for your planning, but not as an absolute one. For specific recertification information, contact Daniel Ringrose, Chair of the General Education Committee, 858-3037 or daniel.ringrose@ndus.edu.
