Where can I take general education courses?

Any accredited community college or institution of higher education that provides comparable courses. The Second Degree Coordinator in the Office of Student Affairs can help you with particular course questions.

Courses provided from other institutions with equivalent course content are acceptable for transfer credit if a "C" or better was earned. Note: Pass/Fail courses are not acceptable for transfer. Maximum credits allowed for CLEP or correspondence courses are 15 each.

If any of the pre-requisites have been or will be CLEPPED you will not receive credit towards the GPA we calculate. Clep credit must be on an official college transcript for us to accept it.
