What is the Racial Issues Graduation Requirement?

All new or readmitted undergraduate students admitted fall 2016 or later must complete an approved learning experience (at least 3 credits) with a significant focus on race and racism to graduate with a bachelor's degree from the university.

How can students meet this requirement?

Approved "racial issues" courses or other learning experiences are designated in the online class schedule and can overlap with any other requirement for graduation, including General Education/Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) requirements, Liberal Studies requirements, major requirements and electives.*

*Upon review, an approved prior learning, independent study, theory seminar or transfer course from other accredited institutions may also be used to meet this graduation requirement.
