*There is a 30 hour outside-of-class requirement for each E ED course. If you take more than one E ED course per semester, however, the 30 hour outside-of-class requirement will count for all the E ED courses you take in a specific semester.  In other words, you will need to put in only 30 total hours if you take more than one E ED course in a specific semester.
