The Pathways Initiative and the City Tech General Education guidelines apply to students who began at City Tech in the fall of 2013 or thereafter, and to those who return after more than one semester of absence. The City Tech General Education guidelines allow students to comply with the Pathways Initiative in the way most consistent with the demands of their majors. The framework consists of a "required core" and a "flexible core."
Where it is the correct academic decision, continuing students can "opt in" to the new requirements. Please see the instructions on the "Opt In" form. The form requires the approval of an advisor in the student's major to be certain that it is the correct academic decision. Cases will be decided individually, based on major and requirements.
