Changing Core Curriculum: How it Affects You
Posted: 8/22/14 3:36 PM
Welcome and welcome back to Xavier! As you know, Xavier is undergoing exciting changes: along with a new Alter Hall, you can look forward to a new core curriculum in Fall, 2015. At that time, returning students will have the option to graduate under a leaner version of the current core. This does not apply to students graduating before Fall, 2015, and is unlikely to affect current first-year student courses. (In other words, first-years, don’t panic, most of you don’t need to understand this now and can ease yourself in later). Everyone else, see the attached and/or visit http://www.xavier.edu/core-transition/ for important information about your core requirements.
