Switching from the Core Requirement to the General Education Requirement

Students who entered Harvard College in September 2008 or earlier are expected to fulfill the requirements of the Core Curriculum, but will be permitted to switch to the Program in General Education if such a change is possible and advisable given their overall schedule and plan of study.  Students who have not yet declared their concentration may switch to the General Education requirements when they submit their Plan of Study and should discuss their plans with their sophomore advisers.  Other interested students should discuss their situation with their Resident Dean, who must approve any change of requirements.  Details on the switching process are available on the General Education Website (www.generaleducation.fas.harvard.edu).
