Notes

  1. Students are strongly encouraged to complete their SDV, ENG, and MTH requirements first.
  2. Some transfer institutions/majors require that students have a foreign language proficiency through the 102 level. Students who completed 3 years of the same foreign language in high school may be exempt from this requirement. Native/fluent speakers may enroll directly into SPA 102 or FRE 102. Please check with your faculty advisor if you wish to take a language other than Spanish or French.
  3. Students should regularly meet with their faculty advisor, confirm requirements at their intended four-year transfer institution, and check their advisement report in MyTyler – SIS.
