Registration Guide

ASU requires the completion of general studies courses.   On this page is a list of recommended courses, which specifically includes Humanities, Arts, and Design (HU) and Social-Behavioral Sciences (SB) courses. You might also see a G, H, or C notation.  Those refer to awareness areas.  You must complete a course in each of those awareness areas.  One way to do that is to take a course that is, for example, and HU and a C or an HU and a G.
