Frequently Asked Questions About the Minor in Intergroup Relations Education

Can I receive retroactive LSA Race & Ethnicity credit for the 122 Dialogues course that I took prior to the Winter 2015 semester?

Courses must be at least three credits in order to be eligible to count towards the LSA Race & Ethnicity requirement. Since our 122 Dialogues course was only two credits prior to W15, students who took dialogue before W15 will not be eligible for retroactive R&E credit for the course.
