Purpose: The curriculum is designed for students who have accumulated credits through a variety of formal and experiential sources and wish to structure a program to suit their needs. It is also for students who wish to tailor a degree to fit the requirements of the institution to which the student is transferring.

Transfer Students: If you intend to transfer to a four-year degree program using the General Studies A.S. degree, you must select your courses carefully. Not all courses will transfer. You should see a counselor during your first semester at NVCC to plan your program to assure that you are taking appropriate courses for transfer.
