I graduated from high school in 1999. Starting that fall ( of '99 ), I went to college ( for business ) for about 2 years and did horribly because I hated the subject matter, but I did earn some credits in a few gen-ed classes that met the english, social/behavioral science, and humanities requirements. I re-entered in the fall of 2007 for engineering, and am wondering if these classes should still count towards graduation. I've read some places that they "expire" after 10 years, but for such generic classes not really related to my major, is this true? My hope is that since I re-entered before that 10 years is up they should count, but worry that since I'll be graduating after the 10 year mark they won't. I understand this probably differs from institution to institution, but any general examples of how this works would be greatly appreciated. And yes, I'm going to ask my advisor later this week. Thanks.
