HASS Distribution Component  

Beginning with the freshman class of Fall 2010, the Institute has phased in a revised HASS Distribution component of the HASS Requirement. Information on the current requirement is available through the Office of the HASS Requirement

Students who entered prior to Fall 2010 must still complete the HASS-D Requirement under which they enrolled. Any students still needing a HASS-D should contact the SHASS Academic Administrator for HASS-D options.
