Students can look at course geBLC indicators to identify what requirement for general education that specific course fills. Follow https://advising.wisc.edu/content/geblc-decoder to access the page on the Undergraduate Advising website that contains a detailed explanation of geBLC indicators.


The indicators are as follows:


Letters in the "g" column identify a course which counts toward either the Communication requirement or the Quantitative Reasoning requirement for general education.

The symbol "e" in the "e" column identifies a course that counts toward the L&S Ethnic Studies requirement.

Symbols in the "B" column show how courses count in meeting the breadth requirement for the L&S BA/BS degrees.

Symbols in the "L" column show course level. Sixty credits of advanced and intermediate level courses are required for the L&S BA/BS degrees.

Symbols in the "C" column are courses which count for degree credit in L&S and which count as part of the 100 credits in L&S.
