It is the responsibility of the student to know and to comply with the prerequisites and the corequisites listed in this catalog. If students have previous college credits from other institutions, students are advised to check first with a counselor at the receiving institution (the institution in which they plan to attend upon leaving CFCC). A counselor at the receiving institution should advise students of the courses to take at CFCC if the students have credits from other institutions. Otherwise, students will be encouraged to 1) complete their associate degree, which consists of 64-65 semester hours, or, the general education core, which consists of 28 semester hours; 2) contact their CFCC advisor, register early, and pay their tuition on time; and 3) earn a grade of “C”or higher on the first attempt. Since this program has only 28 credit hours in the general education core, students may be required to fulfill their basic studies requirement after they transfer. While some UNC institutions accept students with a 2.0 grade-point average, other UNC institutions require at least a 2.5 gradepoint average. (Reminder: While CFCC will accept a grade of “C-,” some senior institutions will not accept this grade.) Students must always comply with the admission requirements of the receiving institution.
Within the degree program, the institution shall include opportunities for the achievement of competence in reading, writing, oral communication, fundamental mathematical skills, and basic computer use. Degree-seekers must demonstrate their computer competency before graduation. They may take a computer competency in the CFCC Learning Lab on either campus. The following courses are not listed in this program, but if students have successfully completed any of the following, they would have met their computer competency: CIS 110 or CIS 115 or CSC 151 or CTS 115.

The general education core consists of 28 semester hour credits.
While the courses in this program are not taught every semester, every effort is made to see that each course is taught at least once per year. When planning a class schedule, students should consider the frequency of the course offerings.
