N2 - We have studied the growth kinetics of several systems with highly degenerate ground states which were quenched from a high (T≫Tc) to a low temperature (T ≅0). The mean domain size R increases algebraically with time as R ≅t n, where surprisingly the value of n is observed to fall into one of two universality classes for all the models studied. We observe a distinct crossover from one universality class to the other as the spin interaction is varied.
