To graduate from a degree program, students entering NVCC Fall 1999 or later must demonstrate computer competency skills as described in the Degree Requirements section of the Instructional Programs of this catalog.

1 Students completing the A.A. in Liberal 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 chair.

2 Any higher mathematics course with a computer component may be substituted, see transfer requirements.

3 The natural science elective may be selected from biology, chemistry, geology, natural science, or physics with a lab component.

4 The PED requirement may be met by one of the following options: PED 116, 2 cr.; PED 116, 1 cr. plus a PED activities course, 1 cr.; or PED 116, 1 cr. plus RPK 205, 216, or 225. PED 116 is offered as both a 1-credit and a 2-credit course.

5 Any 200-level literature course with an ENG prefix satisfies this requirement.

6 HIS 101-102 or HIS 121-122 are recommended.

7 The social science elective may be selected from one of the following: economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, or sociology (includes anthropology).

8 The humanities/fine arts elective may be selected from the list on page 38. Elective should be selected with advice of a counselor or faculty advisor to meet requirements of transfer institution.
