Curricular Requirements



A.A./A.S./A.F.A. Degrees

In selecting courses, students are expected to follow curricula guides for their intended majors and specializations. Students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities are urged to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the institutions and major departments to which they intend to transfer. With careful planning, students may be able to meet both general education requirements and prerequisites for majors with the same courses, allowing greater flexibility in selecting electives. Students should consult counselors or academic advisors to select courses most appropriate for their curricula. Many TCC courses are transferable as general electives even if they do not fulfill core requirements.

A.A.A./A.A.S. Degrees and Certificates

In selecting courses, students are expected to follow the curricula guides for their intended majors and specializations. Where appropriate, students may select courses from lists of approved courses provided by their division office to meet requirements in the degrees or certificates. While general education courses other than those designed specifically for transfer may be used to meet portions of the general education requirements, principles published by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges require that general education courses be general in nature and not “…narrowly focused on those skills, techniques, and procedures peculiar to a particular occupation or profession.” A.A.S./ A.A.A. degrees generally are not designed for transfer, but students can increase the transferability of selected applied degrees by substituting transfer courses where appropriate to meet program requirements.
