Classics classes that have previously had a CLAS prefix will now have a humanities designation and HUM prefixes. 

CLAS 231 Greek and Roman Civilization and Culture à HUM 231 Greek and Roman Civilization and Culture. 

Similar to other crosswalks, the registrar has marked courses with the updated prefixes as equivalent, so they should automatically be processed for student who wish to D/F repeat those classes. If a student has previously taken CLAS 231 successfully (C- or higher) and take HUM 231, this will result in duplicate credit and populate into Incomplete, Withdraw, Repeated block of DegreeWorks, so please be mindful during advising.  

In addition, Humanities, Philosophy, and Religious Studies will be offering more honors sections of their GEF courses. These courses will help students to earn honors credits with their GEF courses and remain CPoS compliant.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the Eberly Advising Office 304-293-7476!
