1 Many universities require MTH 151 or higher while others require MTH 163 or 166 or higher, often including a statistics course, for majors in the social sciences. It is therefore important that students confer with a counselor to determine the appropriate mathematics courses for their intended transfer university.

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

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

4 The social science elective may be selected from the social/behavioral sciences courses listed under General Education Electives. To meet requirements at many universities, students should enroll in at least one U.S. History course and one Western Civilization course. Students should consult with a counselor to determine the appropriate social science courses for their intended transfer university.
