Important Notes to the Student
- Students may participate in the Associate degree commencement ceremony if they have completed a minimum of 53 units and have no more than 2 non-sequential degree requirements left to fulfill.
- No course can fulfill more than one Liberal Education Core course requirement, except for the CC/CD “Themed Course” required for graduation. This course may be simultaneously used to fulfill a Liberal Education Core course requirement. (Please see the list of CC/CD “Themed Courses”.)
- For any course that satisfies a specific degree requirement, the corresponding cross-listed course will also satisfy the same requirement.
- A limit of four units from any one course numbered 279 through 299 will be counted toward the Associate degree requirements.
- A maximum of eight total units from any combination of courses numbered 279 through 299 will be counted toward the Associate degree requirements.
- Four or five unit courses with a compulsory, built-in lab may not be split between the general education core and concentration areas. However, a three-unit course with a one-unit optional lab (3+1) may be split between the general education core and the concentration area.
- ID 117 cannot fulfill the CC/CD requirement because it fulfills the Freshman Seminar graduation requirement.
- * Courses with this designation that are completed by a comparable course at another college or university must be petitioned to the Vice President of Academic Affairs for course evaluation (course syllabus must accompany petition).
