General Education Course Requirement

In addition to the common core courses, each A.A. degree-seeking student MUST complete the following requirements (21–22 credits).

A.A. degree-seeking students must select courses from the General Education course requirements. Each course addresses institutional competencies and outcomes, and satisfies the Florida State Board of Education standards to meet the Gordon Rule requirements for writing and mathematics. All Gordon Rule writing and mathematics courses must be passed with a grade of C or better. General Education core courses (36 hours in total) must be passed with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Note: A.A. degree-seeking students who plan to transfer to a four-year program should be aware that a D grade may not transfer to the institution of their choice.

The following courses meet the Gordon Rule requirement, with the exception of CPO 2001 Comparative Politics, SPC 2300 Interpersonal Communication, SPC 2608 Effective Speaking, SPC 2601 Advanced Effective Speaking, SPC 2594 Intercollegiate Forensics Speech, THE 1925 Play Production, TPP 2100 Acting I, and natural science courses.
