Please note the following:
a) When students transfer prior to the completion of an A.S. degree, the liberal arts and science courses they have completed will be deemed to have fulfilled discipline-specific distribution requirements for all baccalaureate programs on a discipline-by-discipline basis, with the exception that upper division coursework will not be recognized unless appropriate prerequisites have been satisfied.
b) Students who have completed professional courses such as Accounting, Education or Nursing, where instruction is begun at the associate degree level and continued at the baccalaureate level, will be granted credit for such coursework upon transfer with the A.S. degree. However, the senior college shall determine the proper level of placement in its professional course sequence and the extent to which such coursework can apply to the professional degree.
c) Graduates of A.S. degree programs who have not completed at least one-year of foreign language study (or established an equivalent proficiency) and transfer into a baccalaureate program requiring a foreign language, may be asked to complete six (6) to eight (8) credits of foreign language coursework (or establish an equivalent proficiency) in addition to their normal degree requirements. Proficiency may be established based upon high school coursework. native language abilities, or examination.
d) Students who pursue a major that departs from their Associate in Science degree program of studies and which requires a sequence of prerequisite courses prior to coursework in the major, and students who change their major after they are enrolled in a senior college, should expect that completion of their bachelors degree may require more than 120 credits.
