General Education Core Requirements



All Tidewater Community College students earning a degree or certificate must complete general education core requirements. Curriculum guides designate specific courses that must be taken to satisfy these requirements. When general education elective courses are required as specified in curriculum guides, students may select from the courses in the following lists. Students may not use the same course to satisfy more than one curriculum requirement.

Some courses, referred to as “passport” courses, are transferable to most public colleges and universities in Virginia and satisfy a lower-division general education requirement. Courses identified as passport courses can be found online at Passport Courses  . 





Note:


In 2017, the Virginia Community College System redesigned most of its mathematics courses. The new courses were implemented at TCC in Fall 2018.

Some career and technical programs specify additional course options that generally do not transfer (i.e., MTH 111 , MTH 130  and MTH 131 ). To view these options, students should review their advising transcripts in the Student Information System or refer to their curriculum guides in the College Catalog.





Note:


Students in curricula that require more than one Humanities elective may select from these additional courses for one of the electives: ASL 101  , ASL 102  , ASL 201 ASL 202  ; CST 126 ; FRE 101 , FRE 102 , FRE 203 , FRE 204 ; GER 101 , GER 102 , GER 201 , GER 202 RUS 101 , RUS 102 , RUS 201 , RUS 202 ; SPA 101 , SPA 102 , SPA 203 , SPA 204 .
