1 Students completing the A.A. in Fine Arts must demonstrate intermediate college-level (201–202) proficiency in a language other than English. The 201-202 courses require a prerequisite proficiency equivalent to the 101–102 sequence in the language. Placement testing determines initial foreign language level. Students completing 101–102 foreign language may use those credits to meet general elective requirements. Waivers or credit by exam (through CLEP) for previous experience is available for some languages. Students whose native language is not English may substitute general electives for foreign language upon the approval of the advising division dean.

2 The social science elective may be selected from the social/behavioral sciences courses listed under General Education Electives.

3 Students may substitute the SDV 101 Orientation section related to this program.

4 ENG 125 may be substituted with the advice of a counselor or academic advisor according to requirements of transfer institutions.

5 The science elective may be selected from biology, chemistry, physics, geology, or natural science courses with a lab component listed under General Education Electives. Some four-year colleges require a two-semester sequence.
