The General Education curriculum is designed for the student who is interested in pursuing a program of study in general education or who is not ready to choose a more specific educational program. This curriculum provides an introduction to the liberal arts (general education) and enables the student to tailor the program beyond that point to personal needs and interests. Students may apply any technical, general education or college transfer course to the degree. (Students should note, however, that they must satisfy any course prerequisites listed.) This program is not intended for students who want to transfer to a four-year university.

Program Outcomes:

Each student in the general education program will prepare an individualized program of study in consultation with his/her advisor.
