1 NAS 161-162 may be substituted but is not recommended for students who might wish to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Although students who have graduated with a transfer-oriented A.A., A.S., or A.A. & S. degree or any baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited United States institution of higher education will have most of their general education considered as met, they must meet the math and science requirements specified for this program. Exceptions must be approved by the division dean responsible for the student’s curriculum.

2 The PED requirement may be met by one of the following options: PED 116, 2 cr.; PED 220, 2 cr.; PED 116, 1 cr. plus a PED activities course, 1 cr.; or PED 116, 1 cr. plus RPK activities course. PED 116 is offered as both a 1-credit and a 2-credit course. PED 116, 2 cr., is strongly recommended.

4 RAD 135 meets for 40 hours a week for ten weeks.

5 Humanities/fine arts elective may be selected from the humanities/fine arts courses listed under General Education Electives.
