* Fundamentals of Biology (BIO-101) is a college prerequisite for BIO-223. Therefore, it will take two semesters to complete this science sequence.

 ** MAT-121 Algebra and Trigonometry, MAT-151 Introduction Analysis (Pre-Calculus), and MAT-191 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry, will satisfy the MAT-131 requirement.

Successful completion of ENG-121 fully satisfies the college English composition general education requirement. Students who take ENG-121 and not ENG-111-112 or ENG-115/116 may need to take an additional elective course to ensure that they complete a minimum of 60 credits, which are required for the award of an associate degree. These credit hours must be chosen with the approval of the department chair or program coordinator.
