Plan 13AB-BHI

The following courses are recommended for students who have not decided upon a specific four-year college or university. Once a transfer school is selected, students are strongly encouraged to meet with an Academic Success Advisor to determine courses at CLC which will also meet the transfer requirements. To complete any transfer degree, students should follow the college requirements for associate degrees that transfer.

All course prerequisites must be met. Additionally, students are required to select one course from the International/Multicultural (I/M) list to meet graduation requirements. A grade of C or better is required for all English course requirements.

^ The credit for CLC 120, College Success Seminar, is an institutional requirement for graduation. It is not part of the program requirements but must be completed with a D or better.

+ Cross listed with LGL 221

Notes: Students who qualify for MTH 224, MTH 127 and MTH 222 can complete this degree in 60 credits.

* A student should consult an academic advisor to determine the correct progression of math courses. The math course progression for this degree will vary depending on the student’s 1) choice of 4-year institution to which to transfer and 2) math competency prior to enrolling at CLC. This schedule assumes a student will enroll in four semesters of math. Depending on a student’s transfer goals or math competency, a student may need to enroll in additional math courses or may be able to substitute one of the math slots for an elective course in the second or third semester of these schedules. Transfer Institution: While each local 4-year transfer institution differs in its math requirements, most require a combination of MTH 224 (Business Calculus), MTH 127 (Finite Mathematics) and/or MTH 222 (Business Statistics). In order to qualify for these courses, students must generally also take MTH 122 (College Algebra). Math Competency: If a student does not meet the prerequisite to enroll in MTH 122, enrollment in developmental courses of MTH 102 and/ or MTH 108 may be required. These courses do not apply toward the requirements of the associate degree.

** A student should consult an Academic Success Advisor to determine the most appropriate elective course. Four-year transfer institutions generally differ in their desired elective course. Please select your desired transfer institution and work with an Academic Success Advisor to align your elective course with its admittance requirements. Common elective courses may include: BUS 227 (formerly BUS 122), BUS 223, BUS 132, BUS 237 or an additional math course.

Note: This plan includes recommendations for students who plan to major in this subject at a four year school. Students who follow this plan will meet the requirements of a general transfer degree (A.A. or A.S). The CLC degree earned will be a general transfer degree, not a degree in this specific area of study.
