About the Flags

All students will eventually be required to earn three Flags in Writing and one Flag in each of the other areas.

Flagged courses are identified in the course schedule with a yellow box that indicates the specific Flag designation. Degree audits also include a yellow box to designate which courses students have taken that satisfy flag requirements.

A course can carry up to three Flags. However, the same course cannot be used to satisfy the Global Cultures and Cultural Diversity Flags even if the course carries both Flags.
