GENERAL EDUCATION ELECTIVES
_________________________

General education is the integrated combination of knowledge, skills, competencies, attitudes, and values characteristic of an educated and well-informed citizen capable of functioning effectively in a complex and rapidly changing world. General education is that portion of the college experience that pertains to the overall development of the student and not just to the specific occupational and/or program skills.

Consequently, the College, in accord with the general education guidelines of the Virginia Community College System, has determined the following list of general education elective courses.

It is highly recommended that you consult with your academic advisor or counselor in order to select the most appropriate course for your curriculum and/or transferability to another college.
