Important Notes Regarding General Education


Courses required in the curriculum for particular programs may also fulfill General Education requirements. Students should carefully compare course requirements for their programs with General Education requirements to ensure they enroll in the most efficient manner possible.

Particular programs may recommend students take specific courses meeting General Education requirements for the purpose of transfer. Students should check the transfer requirements for the college or university they plan to attend to ensure they enroll for the appropriate required courses.

Students meeting General Education requirements by earning passing scores on the competency exam may need to make up credit hours for degree requirements. A student must earn a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit, 15 of which must be earned at MCCC.

Transfer courses not having an equivalency at MCCC may be evaluated for competency by a faculty content expert and approved by the dean of that division. This process is initiated by the transfer student in relation with the Registrar’s office upon receiving official copies of transcripts and will be done on a case-by-case basis.

*NOTE: No student may take this course to satisfy more than one General Education Course Competency.
