Pending Governing Board Approval, 8/27/19. For the most current information regarding common policies degree requirements, log on to https:// 1 5 2 CGCC Catalog & Student Handbook 2019-2020 | Degree Requirements • Within the Restricted Electives, course recommendations are made for specific transfer institutions. Students should select a subplan (group of courses) based on their intended transfer institution. However, not all transfer institutions are reflected in these recommendations. Therefore, students may instead select the general subplan and meet the minimum number of Restricted Elective credits using a combination of courses from the other subplans. Restricted Electives should be selected in consultation with an academic, faculty, or program advisor. • General Electives may need to be selected to meet the minimum total credits required for the degree. All courses numbered 100-or-higher may be applied as General Electives. Students are encouraged to select courses that align with their goals. • Note that some majors require up to a 4th semester proficiency (202-course level) in a non-English language. Students should consult with an academic advisor to discuss options to complete these requirements. • Maricopa courses and external courses evaluated as Maricopa equivalents, departmental electives, (e.g., HISELC for a history elective), or general electives (GENELC) that are numbered 100 level or higher, and completed with a grade of "C" or higher, may be applied in the elective area, regardless of potential transferability to other institutions. It is recommended, however, that students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate-granting institution meet these general elective requirements with courses that are transferable and applicable to their intended university degree. Transfer advisement information is accessible on the following websites:,, as well as those of individual universities. For appropriate course selection, students should consult with an academic advisor. • Any course cross-referenced under another prefix(es) (for example ENH291/EDU291/STO291-Children's Literature) covers identical content and its credits can only be counted once toward requirements. Transfer Credit from Institutions Outside of MCCCD • Credits transferred from outside of MCCCD must be at a grade of "C" (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better. • External courses evaluated either as equivalent to an MCCCD course or as elective credit may be applied toward the minimum credits for degree completion. • Transfer credit graded pass/fail or pass/no credit may be used to satisfy AGEC requirements if documentation collected by the community college indicates that this was the only grading option available and that the Pass grade ("P") is equivalent to a "C" or better. • The AGEC (Arizona General Education Curriculum) designations of courses completed at other Arizona public colleges or universities will be applied as listed on AZTransfer's Course Equivalency Guide (CEG) for the semester(s) in which the course(s) were completed. If a transcript evaluation determines there is no MCCCD direct equivalency to a course from another Arizona public college or university, applicability to AGEC and/or associate degree requirements will be based on the source institution's AGEC designation for the semester in which the course was completed. • Courses from private, out-of-state, and/or online institutions (i.e., outside of the Arizona Transfer System comprised of Arizona's public community colleges, tribal colleges and universities) will be applied toward AGEC and/or associate degree requirements based on the courses' evaluated MCCCD equivalence. If courses are not directly equivalent, the credit may be articulated as a departmental elective, and if deemed appropriate, may have a general education designation applied to the course. • Credit awarded at a Maricopa Community College for prior learning is transferable to the other colleges in the district but is not necessarily transferable to other colleges and universities. No more than 20 such assessed semester credit hours may be applied toward AGEC, and no more than 30 credits (including up to 20 toward AGEC) may be applied toward a degree. Completion and Transfer • Completion of the AGEC with a minimum Grade Point Average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale for Arizona residents and 2.50 for non-residents meets Arizona public university general admission requirements.
