  • The first section lists Required Credits, Required Institutional Credits, Maximum Transfer Credits allowed and Overall GPA requirement.
  • The next section outlines specific courses needed to meet degree requirements. A YES  indicates successful completion of the course, or indicates that you are currently registered for the course, or have received a grade of “I” (in red). An “I” grade means you must complete all remaining course requirements by the end of the current semester. Failure to do so will result in a grade conversion to “F”
  • A NO indicates you have yet to meet this course or requirement. Refer to the College Catalog for course descriptions and elective categories.
  • Students enrolled in an A.A. or A.S. program will also see a section titled AA/AS Gen Ed Requirements. These students must complete all Gen Ed Requirements to receive an A.A. or A.S. degree. Refer to the College Catalog for a list of approved Gen Ed courses.
  • Students matriculated in a program concentration will see a section for concentration requirements.
