I am looking into going to college for the first time. So I may have some really dumb questions. I also probably could ask a college advisor this, but Im not ready to get in touch with them yet. What I am wanting to know is to go for a bachelors I have to take general education classes. They give a list and how many credit hours needed. The first is english and says I have to take classes 101 and 102. I understand that. The rest just says I have to take classes from a certain group. How do I know how many I need and which ones to choose? Do I have a choice? Here is the link for a visual of what I'm saying. Its the list under students entering a bachelor's program.

Generally your first 2 years (of a 4 year program), are taking core classes--English, Math, History, Science, Foreign Language--core classes vary from college to college and program to program. If you know what you want to study, you should "declare" your major as soon as you are accepted and sign up for classes. You will then be given your major's requirements, and you can plan accordingly. Basic (first year) level courses include numbers ie: Biology 101, 102, etc, and advanced level courses are identified with 201, 202, 303, 405, 601 etc.
The core classes will be required of whatever major you will be studying, however, when you get to the last 2 years of your major you may find that a lab class or internship will take the place of a core course. And be careful, SOME classes are only held once a year, and are a prerequisite to taking an advanced class, so it might set you back a year!
