Flag Requirements

All students will eventually be required to earn three Flags in Writing and one Flag in each of the other areas. Please consult with your academic advisor to determine which Flags are required for your major and catalog, and to learn about how you may earn each Flag in the process of completing your major, core, and other degree requirements. To speak with a Flags advisor, you can reach us via email or by phone at 512-232-4711.

Flagged courses are identified in the course schedule with a yellow box that indicates the specific Flag designation. Degree audits also include a yellow box to designate which courses students have taken that satisfy flag requirements.

Course Schedule Flag Example

A course can carry up to three Flags. However, the same course cannot be used to satisfy the Global Cultures and Cultural Diversity Flags even if the course carries both Flags.
