What are the changes to the General Education curriculum (UK Core vs. USP)?

While there are many differences, some of the key changes would include:

  • The foreign language component has been changed from a general education requirement in USP to a proficiency-based requirement that must be completed prior to graduation
  • USP required more than 40 credit hours to satisfy, whereas UK Core requires 30 credit hours (or equivalency)
  • There is no math ACT/SAT opt-out for the Quantitative Foundations requirement in UK Core
