Academic Program and Curriculum Committee (APCC)

The Academic Program and Curriculum Committee (APCC) reviews recommendations concerning requirements and changes in requirements for admission to, continuation in, and graduation from undergraduate programs offered in the UWM schools, colleges, and divisions.

General Education Requirements (GER)

GER Moratorium

There is currently a task force working on reconfiguring/reconceptualizing UWM’s General Education Requirements (GER). In the interim, there is a moratorium on approving new GER courses. However, the Academic Program and Curriculum Committee (APCC) recognizes the following exceptions:

  1. Reactivating GER on a course that previously had GER status
  2. Jointly offered with another course that already has GER status
  3. CGS courses aligning with a UWM course that already has GER status
  4. Moving GER from one course to another where the new GER course aligns to the current GER requirements and will better serve students (and where the previous course did not).
