General Education Course Requirement

In addition to the state general education core courses, each A.A. degree-seeking student MUST complete the following requirements (21 credits).

A.A. degree-seeking students must select courses from the General Education Institutional core 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. Gordon Rule courses are noted with ** throughout the catalog.

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.

ENC 1101 is a prerequisite for all courses used to satisfy the Gordon Rule writing requirement. Courses used to satisfy the Gordon Rule requirement must be passed with a grade of C or better.
