Introduction

 

The Lower-Division Academic Course Guide Manual (ACGM) is the official list of approval numbers for general academic transfer courses that may be offered for state funding by public community and technical colleges in Texas.  Questions concerning the content or implementation of the procedures in this manual should be directed to:

 

Dr. Julie Leidig

Director of Instructional Programs

Division of Community and Technical Colleges

Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board

P.O.  Box 12788

Austin, Texas 78711-2788

Phone: (512) 427-6315

The provisions for approval of general academic courses for state appropriations are outlined in the Coordinating Board's Rules and Regulations, Chapter 5, Subchapter S.  Accordingly, the Coordinating Board established an Academic Course Guide Manual Review Committee with equal representation from public community colleges and public universities.  This standing committee meets at least twice annually or more frequently as needed to recommend to the Coordinating Board staff appropriate courses to be added to, revised, or deleted from the Academic Course Guide Manual (ACGM).  The members of the Committee who contributed to this edition of the ACGM are listed at the beginning of this manual.

Changes in the ACGM

The 2001 edition of the ACGM lists alphabetically by discipline the academic courses that are funded by the state for public community and technical colleges and are transferable to public universities.  (For information regarding workforce education courses and their transferability, see the Workforce Education Course Manual.)  This edition incorporates all course additions and changes summarized in the Summer 2000 Addendum to the Lower Division Academic Course Guide Manual.   Course additions include new courses incorporated into field of study curricula or otherwise needed to reflect new curriculum trends.

The ACGM and the Academic Unique Need Inventory

The 2001 ACGM serves as the generic academic course inventory for all community and technical colleges in Texas.  Individual institutions are not required to maintain separate general academic course inventories.  Courses listed in this manual may be offered and reported for funding without requesting approval from the Coordinating Board.

 

If a community or technical college wishes to offer a course not listed here, or offer an ACGM course for more credit or contact hours than listed, it must request approval for such a course on the basis of unique need.  There are no provisions in the 2001 edition for special topics courses.  A resulting inventory of Unique Need Courses is the only academic inventory required of individual institutions.  Colleges must continue to report academic courses according to instructions in the most recent edition of the Reporting and Procedures Manual for Public Community and Technical Colleges published by the Educational Data Center of the Coordinating Board.  All "edits" of reports must be in accordance with the ACGM and the individual institutions' Unique Need Course inventories.  The state will not fund academic courses at community and technical colleges that are not listed either in the ACGM or on the college’s Academic Unique Need inventory.

Instructions: How to Read and Use the ACGM

In the previous edition of the ACGM, courses were listed in order of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code used by the U.S. Department of Education.  To make the manual easier to use, the 2001 edition is organized alphabetically by academic disciplines currently taught at community and technical colleges.  All common courses listed in the 2001 ACGM have been numbered to correspond to course numbers assigned by the Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS). 

 

Where available, each entry begins with a list of common course prefixes and numbers; for course descriptions with no common numbers currently assigned, a content descriptor (for example, “Environmental Science”) is listed.   Beneath the course list appears a line listing the 10-digit approval number for the course, the matching content descriptor, and information about maximum semester credit hours (SCH) per student, maximum SCH per course, and maximum content hours per course.  This information is underlined.  Finally, a brief course description appears.

 

For example:

 

            BIOL 1106 (lab, 1st semester, for Biology majors)

            BIOL 1107 (lab, 2nd semester, for Biology majors)

            BIOL 1306 (lecture, 1st semester, for Biology majors)

BIOL 1307 (lecture, 2nd semester, for Biology majors)

            BIOL 1406 (lecture + lab, 1st semester, for Biology majors)

            BIOL 1407 (lecture + lab, 2nd semester, for Biology majors)

            BIOL 1108 (lab, 1st semester)

            BIOL 1109 (lab, 1st semester)

            BIOL 1308 (lecture, 1st semester)

            BIOL 1309 (lecture, 2nd semester)

            BIOL 1408 (lecture + lab, 1st semester)

            BIOL 1409 (lecture + lab, 2nd semester)

 

26.0101.51 03  General Biology

Fundamental principles of living organisms including physical and chemical properties of life, organization, function, evolutionary adaptation, and classification.  Concepts of reproduction, genetics, ecology, and the scientific method are included.

Approval Number………………………….26.0101.51 03

Content Descriptor………………………General Biology

Maximum SCH per student……………………………...8

Maximum SCH per course…………………………...….4

Maximum contact hours per course………………….…96

 

In this example, the 10-digit CIP approval number is 26.0101.5103.  The first six digits of the approval number indicate subject matter and are based upon the CIP codes.  The Coordinating Board staff assigns the last four digits.  The 7th and 8th digits further delineate course content, sequence, or approval category.  The 9th and 10th digits indicate the funding category.

 

26.0101 is the CIP code for General Biology

    

51           is the code for the content listed in the course description.  The range for these numbers is typically 51 to 59.  However, if a course is approved as a Unique Need Course (as opposed to general approval), the 7th digit will be a 9 instead of a 5.  If a course is approved as a permanent unique need, the 7th digit will be a 7 instead of a 5 or 9.  If the course is approved for excessive credit and/or contact hours (more than allowed in the approved listing), the 7th digit will be an 8 instead of a 5 or 9. 

 

03           is the current state funding code for biological sciences in public community and junior colleges.  These codes range from 01 to 26.  A complete listing of the academic funding codes is contained in the appendix.  IMPORTANT NOTE:  THE 2001 EDITION OF THE ACGM REFLECTS NEW STATE FUNDING CODES ADOPTED THIS YEAR.  MOST OF THESE CODES WILL NOT MATCH FUNDING CODES FOUND IN THE 1996 ACGM.

 

After the CIP descriptor, “General Biology,” the maximum hours per student, semester credit hours (SCH) per course, and contact hours per course are listed:

    

     8     is the maximum number of semester credit hours (SCH) per student for courses applicable toward an associate degree under this specific approval number.  In this example, a college may allow students to take eight SCH of general biology courses and count them toward an associate degree.

 

4      is the maximum number of semester credit hours per course under this specific approval number.  In this case, the maximum number is four.  A college could offer a course under this approval number for four or fewer SCH, but not more.  The college should award the SCH in proportion to the number of contact hours, type of instruction, and with regard to the assigned common course number.

 

A traditional Biology (or any other discipline) lecture course offered for three contact hours of lecture over a 16-week semester will earn three semester credit hours and carry a "3" in the second digit of the common course number.  Similarly, a traditional lecture/lab course offered for three contact hours of lecture and three contact hours of laboratory over a 16-week semester would earn four semester credit hours and carry a "4" in the second digit of the common course number.  In general, one semester credit hour is awarded per one contact hour of lecture instruction and one semester credit hour is awarded per two to four contact hours of laboratory instruction. 

 

96        is the total maximum number of contact hours per course according to this particular approval number.  Thus, a college can offer a course under the General Biology approval number for 96 or fewer contact hours, but not more.  In this example, a four SCH biology course can be offered for up to a maximum 96 contact hours.  During a regular 16-week semester, 96 contact hours in this particular course might be broken down into three hours of lecture per week and three hours of lab per week or into other combinations that total 96 contact hours. 

 

In rare cases, no common courses have been identified for specific approval numbers.  Approval numbers for religion courses, listed under the heading “RELI” in this manual, are an example.  In such cases, the college may designate its own course prefixes and numbers.

The Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS)

The TCCNS is a cooperative effort among Texas community colleges and universities to facilitate transfer of freshman- and sophomore-level general academic courses.

 

The TCCNS provides a shared, uniform set of course designations for students and their advisors to use in determining both course equivalency and degree applicability of transfer credit on a statewide basis.  When students transfer between two participating TCCNS institutions, a course taken at the sending institution transfers as the course carrying, or cross-referenced with, the same TCCNS designation at the receiving institution.

 

For additional information about the TCCNS, consult the following the following web sites:

 

The TCCNS Matrix Online (http://www.tccns.org/ccn/) is hosted by Texas A&M University at Commerce.  This web site contains a list of participating TCCNS institutions, the TCCNS taxonomy, the TCCNS history, and the TCCNS board members.  The site also contains the master list of the common courses offered in Texas.  The list is organized by institution and by TCCNS designation.

 

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s web site is http://www.thecb.state.tx.us.  TCCNS Transfer Guides are available at the site.  The Transfer Guides provide information and recommendations regarding specific common courses that students can take at Texas community and junior colleges to ensure degree applicability of transfer credit at four-year public universities.  For example, if a student wishes to major in biochemistry and to begin his/her studies at Texarkana College and later transfer to Texas A&M University (TAMU), the student can (and should) consult the TAMU Transfer Guide for biochemistry.  This guide will inform the student of exactly which courses to take at Texarkana College.

Addition and Deletion of Courses

At the institution’s request, THECB staff and the Standing ACGM Review Committee may consider a course for placement in the ACGM.   If THECB staff members determine that there is continued need for that course at that particular institution, then the course will be presented to the Standing ACGM Review Committee for review. If a majority of the committee votes that the course should be included in the ACGM, then the course description used by the institution initiating the request will be evaluated and revised by the committee if necessary.

 

The Standing ACGM Review Committee may consider information from the following categories to determine whether to include the course in the ACGM. The committee may request additional information from the institution submitting the request; institutions are encouraged to submit any additional information for consideration they deem relevant.

 

HOWEVER, THE FOLLOWING IS NOT INTENDED TO BE AN EXHAUSTIVE LIST OF INFORMATION CATEGORIES, NOR IS IT INTENDED THAT INSTITUTIONS SUBMITTING REQUESTS MUST SCORE HIGH MARKS IN ALL CATEGORIES.

 

The information for consideration may include the following:

Ø     Unique Need approval history:  Normally the course will have had Unique Need approval for at least the three previous years (one previous year if the course is applicable to the core curriculum).

Ø     The course has met the criteria for inclusion in an institution’s course inventory as a Unique Need course for a five-year cycle.

Ø     Course frequency and enrollments for the preceding three years have been adequate.

Ø     The course has current applicability to baccalaureate degree plans.

Ø     Application to the Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS). Final approval for inclusion in the ACGM is contingent upon the assignment of a common course number.

Ø     Applicability of the course to the institution’s Core Curriculum.

Ø     Frequency of similar courses statewide at both two- and four-year institutions.

Ø     Applicability of the course to an academic major or a statewide field of study curriculum.

Ø     Course description.

Ø     Consultation with appropriate academic, professional, credentialing, or accrediting organizations.

 

If a majority of the committee votes that the course should be included in the ACGM, then the course description used by the institution initiating the request will be evaluated and revised by the committee if necessary. If a course is not approved by the ACGM committee and  THECB staff determines that an institution has continued need of the course, the institution may continue to offer the course on a Unique Need basis.

 

The Standing ACGM Review Committee will review and consider a biannual survey of courses in the ACGM. THECB staff, using the CBM004 and other means to determine how frequently courses are taught, will conduct the survey. The ACGM committee may also consider recommendations for deletion from institutions or academic, professional, credentialing, or accrediting organizations. The course recommended for deletion will be placed under review for at least two years by a majority vote of the ACGM committee. THECB staff will contact the institutions still teaching the course to alert them of the “under review” status. Any course under review for two years may be removed from the ACGM by a majority vote in favor of removal by the Standing ACGM Review Committee.

 

The basis for deletion may include the following:

 

Ø     Infrequently offered courses, or low enrollments in courses statewide.

Ø     Lack of applicability to a four-year degree, or obsolescence in a discipline.

Unique Need Courses

Approval for a course not available under an ACGM approval number or for one with credit and/or contact hours in excess of the limits prescribed by the ACGM must be approved by the Coordinating Board according to the Boards Rules and Regulations, Section 5.172 (included below).  When applying for a Unique Need Course, submit a Request for Approval.  Be sure that all information requested is addressed or attached as needed.  A copy of this form appears in the Appendix.

 

For courses to be included in the ACGM as Unique Need Courses, each specific course must meet the two following criteria:

 

1.     The course must be acceptable for transfer to two or more Texas and/or regional universities.  Copies of letters documenting transferability must be included in the application.  The letters must state that the course could be applied to degree requirements, preferably for the core curriculum or a specific major, but at least as elective credit.

 

2.     The course requested must have college and university level rigor.  Courses designed to meet a community service, leisure, vocational, or avocational need are inappropriate for unique need approval and will not receive state (academic) funding.

 

Upper-division courses at community and technical colleges will not be funded by the state and may not be added to the ACGM.  However, if regional universities decline to offer an upper division course and if that course also meets the two criteria above, a community or junior college may request approval to add the course to its inventory of Unique Need Courses and to receive funding as such.  The prerequisites of the proposed course must meet both institutions’ prerequisites.

 

The procedures for unique need approval are:

 

1.     The application for each Unique Need Course submitted to the Coordinating Board must be accompanied by a proposal that states the various needs for the course and a syllabus that includes a course description, detailed course outline, and objectives.  This proposal must also document that the course is transferable to two public universities and that it meets the requirement for college and university rigor.  

 

2.     Colleges must reapply for approval of Unique Need Courses annually.  At the institution’s request upon the third consecutive approval, a course may be considered for continued placement in that institution's course inventory.  Requests must include the enrollments and frequency with which the course was offered during the preceding two years. 

 

Exemptions to the three year approval procedure may be requested if a Unique Need Course is transferable as part of the state’s and the Coordinating Board’s mandated Core Curriculum.  An institution may request that such a course be considered for inclusion after the course has been taught the previous academic year.  These requests must include the enrollments and frequency with which the course was offered during the preceding years. 

 

The Coordinating Board and the Standing ACGM Review Committee will review and evaluate the continued need for Unique Need Courses in accordance with a five-year cycle.

Distance Learning

For community colleges, distance learning may take the form of instruction offered at distant sites -- out-of-district, out-of-state, or out-of-country -- or instruction delivered primarily by telecommunications technology.  Unless specifically exempted by the Coordinating Board, all state-funded distance learning courses and programs must be submitted for annual review to the appropriate Higher Education Regional Councils (Subchapter H, Approval of Distance Learning for Public Colleges and Universities, of the Coordinating Board Rules and Regulations, Chapter 5.) The text of Subchapter H is included in the appendix of this manual.

 

An "Annual Plan" for Distance Learning consists of a listing by location of distance learning courses and programs planned to be taught during an academic year by an institution.  The Annual Plan must include a signed statement of institutional commitment to Distance Learning Standards (see appendix for this form).  Each college must prepare an Annual Plan in January for the following academic year.  For example, the Annual Plan for 2001-2002 must be prepared in January 2001.  The Annual Plan will be submitted by the college to the appropriate Higher Education Regional Council(s) for approval during council meetings in January or February.  The Higher Education Regional Councils thereafter make recommendations to the Commissioner of Higher Education regarding the Annual Plans.  The Commissioner in turn makes recommendations regarding the Annual Plans to the Coordinating Board at its April meeting. 

 

Colleges wishing to offer academic courses for state funding for which all or part of the courses would be taught outside Texas must obtain prior approval from the Coordinating Board staff.  The form needed to request approval for an out-of-state (or out-of-country) academic course appears in the Appendix. 

Developmental Courses

Developmental course work may be reported for state reimbursement but does not result in degree credit.  Because developmental courses do not transfer, no common courses are listed for developmental approval numbers.  Colleges may designate their own course titles but should follow the specified restrictions for number of SCH per student, maximum SCH, and maximum contact hours.  The first digit developmental course numbers should be “0” to indicate that the course does not carry credit.

 

Developmental course approval numbers are listed in a separate chapter of this manual See Table of Contents).

EDUC (Education)

EDUC 1300       Learning Framework

A study of the 1) research and theory in the psychology of learning, cognition, and motivation, 2) factors that impact learning, and 3) application of learning strategies. Theoretical models of strategic learning, cognition, and motivation serve as the conceptual basis for the introduction of college-level student academic strategies. Students use assessment instruments (e.g., learning inventories) to help them identify their own strengths and weaknesses as strategic learners. Students are ultimately expected to integrate and apply the learning skills discussed across their own academic programs and become effective and efficient learners. Students developing these skills should be able to continually draw from the theoretical models they have learned. (Cross-listed as PSYC 1300.)

(Note: While traditional study skills courses include some of the same learning strategies – e.g., note-taking, reading, test preparation etc. – as learning framework courses, the focus of study skills courses is solely or primarily on skill acquisition. Study skills courses, which are not under-girded by scholarly models of the learning process, are not considered college-level, and, therefore, are distinguishable from Learning Framework courses.)

(Note: Because Texas Education Code; Subchapter F, Section 51.301 does not specify how the required course content should be distributed over the required six SCH, two instructional patterns, represented by the TCCN course sequences GOVT 2301 & 2302 or GOVT 2305 & 2306, have evolved among institutions. Because combination of a course from one sequence with a course from the other sequence may not successfully fulfill the content requirement of Section 51.301, students are urged to complete all six SCH within a single institution. Inevitably, however, students will seek to combine courses from the two sequences. The following alternative combinations will fulfill the content requirement of Section 51.301: GOVT 2301 and 2305; GOVT 2301 and 2306.)

PSYC (Psychology)

PSYC 1300        Learning Framework

A study of the 1) research and theory in the psychology of learning, cognition, and motivation, 2) factors that impact learning, and 3) application of learning strategies. Theoretical models of strategic learning, cognition, and motivation serve as the conceptual basis for the introduction of college-level student academic strategies. Students use assessment instruments (e.g., learning inventories) to help them identify their own strengths and weaknesses as strategic learners. Students are ultimately expected to integrate and apply the learning skills discussed across their own academic programs and become effective and efficient learners. Students developing these skills should be able to continually draw from the theoretical models they have learned. (Cross-listed as EDUC 1300.)

(Note: while traditional study skills courses include some of the same learning strategies – e.g., note-taking, reading, test preparation etc. –  as learning framework courses, the focus of study skills courses is solely or primarily on skill acquisition. Study skills courses, which are not under-girded by scholarly models of the learning process, are not considered college-level and therefore are distinguishable from Learning Framework courses.)

NOTES

1        Each baccalaureate degree offered in conjunction with the 4th through 8th grade certification has three required components:  General Education (42-48 SCH), an Academic Composite Major (48 SCH), and Pedagogy (18-24 SCH).  Elements of the Field of Study curriculum must transfer into one of these three components as determined by the receiving institution.

2        The actual course title and course number will be determined by the Lower-Division Academic Course Guide Manual (ACGM) Advisory Committee – math courses completed May 2000.

3        Workforce Education Course Manual (WECM) courses are technical in nature; Lower-Division Academic Course Guide Manual (ACGM) courses are transferable lower-level, academic courses.

4        In January 1997, the Coordinating Board adopted a policy requiring all teacher certification programs to include 6-9 hours of mathematics and 6-9 hours of science in addition to the core curriculum.


Field of Study Curriculum for Business

 

The Business Field of Study Curriculum Advisory Committee reviewed the lower-division (freshman and sophomore) requirements of all public four-year colleges and universities in the state of Texas for students seeking a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree, including all specializations, concentrations, etc.  The Committee compiled and compared the findings in an attempt to develop a set of courses that could constitute a Field of Study Curriculum for students seeking the BBA degree; the curriculum would also apply to institutions that award the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with a major in business, including all business specializations.  Although some institutions might require a particular course indicative of its mission or region, the committee found that there was substantial commonality among the requirements at different colleges and universities.

 

 Based on that information, the Committee proposes the following annotated set of courses  (totaling between 21 and 24 semester credit hours of fully transferable and applicable lower-division courses) to be considered as a Field of Study Curriculum for Business:

 

Courses

 

Content Area

Number and type of courses

Texas Common Course

Numbering System (TCCNS)

 Equivalents

Economics

2 courses:

Microeconomics & Macroeconomics

 

ECON 2301 & 2302 only

Mathematics

1 course:

minimum content must be at the level of Calculus or above

 

MATH 1325[1]

Computer Literacy

1 course:

new course, with a TCCNS BCIS prefix to be assigned[2]

 

BCIS 13XX or 14XX only

Speech

1 course:

public speaking with an emphasis (50% or more of course content) on the preparation and presentation of professional speeches, using computer technology when appropriate

 

 

SPCH 1311 (with appropriate content only), or

SPCH 1315, or

SPCH 1321 (preferred) only

Accounting

2 courses:

Financial & Managerial Accounting

 

ACCT 2301 or 2401 & 2302 or 2402 only

 

The following Notes are also part of the field of study curriculum. They address special circumstances.

 

NOTES:

 

First, wherever possible, courses applied to fulfill the field of study curriculum requirement should also be used to satisfy requirements in the general academic core curriculum.  Generally, the math course, the speech course and the first economics course may be able to fulfill requirements in both curricula.

 

Second, up to a total of six additional semester credit hours of business-related lower-division course work may be transferred by local agreement between institutions, OR required by the receiving institution as long as the additional credit does not duplicate any other requirement within the field of study curriculum.

 

Third, special circumstances dictate the following supplements to the field of study curriculum:

 

·        Degree programs in Information Systems, Computer Information Systems, and Management Information Systems may require additional courses and/or demonstrated proficiency in computer programming;

 

·        International Business and other business programs with a specific international focus may require additional courses and/or demonstrated proficiency in foreign language; and

 

·        Joint degree programs in which the degree awarded is a business degree, but the program is jointly offered by a business and a non-business discipline (such as a BBA in Actuarial Science offered jointly by a College of Business and a Department of Mathematics and Statistics) may include some or all of any field of study curricular components of the non-business discipline.  If no field of study exists for the non-business discipline, the lower-division courses that are normally required of majors in the non-business discipline should be completed as part of lower-division preparation for upper-division work.


Field of Study Curriculum for Music

 

            The field of study curriculum for music is designed to apply to the Bachelor of Music degree but may also be applied to the Bachelor of Arts or other baccalaureate-level music degrees as deemed appropriate by the awarding institution.  The field of study curriculum is furthermore intended to serve as a guide for community and technical colleges in structuring a transfer curriculum in music.

 

Field of Study Courses

 

            The field of study curriculum shall consist of 27 to 35 lower division semester credit hours that are fully transferable.  Transfer of credit in ensemble, applied study, and theory/aural skills shall be on a course-for-course basis.

Keyboard (piano) Competency

 

            Because keyboard (piano) competency is a requirement for most baccalaureate degrees in music, up to four additional semester credit hours of course work pertaining to keyboard (piano) may transfer by agreement between institutions.  Keyboard competency courses approved for transfer are courses in group piano or applied lessons that concentrate specifically on skills development for passing keyboard proficiency examinations.  Keyboard courses that concentrate primarily on performance literature are not considered to be keyboard competency courses for the purposes of this field of study.  Completion of courses leading to keyboard proficiency does not necessarily satisfy the established proficiency requirement at a receiving institution.

 

Competency, Proficiency, and Diagnostic Assessment

 

            Transferring students who have completed the field of study curriculum must satisfy the competency and proficiency requirements of the receiving institution.  Transferring students shall not be required to repeat courses transferred as part of the field of study curriculum.  However, diagnostic assessment of transfer students is permissible if the receiving institution routinely conducts diagnostic assessment of native students at the same point in the program of study.

 

Vocal Diction and Instrumental Methods

                                                                                                                                               

            Course work in vocal diction and instrumental methods is not included in the field of-study curriculum but may nonetheless transfer by agreement between institutions.

 

Courses for Specific Degree Programs

 

            Completion of the field of study curriculum shall not prevent a receiving institution from requiring additional lower division courses that may be necessary for specific degree programs.  Courses selected for inclusion in the field of study curriculum are those considered to be common to lower division study for most music degrees.  Receiving institutions may require transfer students in specialized programs (e.g., jazz studies, performance, composition, music therapy, etc.) to take additional degree-specific lower-division courses that are not included in the field of study curriculum.

 

 

 

Music Literature Course(s)

 

            The music field of study curriculum contains one semester of music literature that will automatically transfer into the student’s degree program at a receiving institution.  Since some senior colleges and universities require students to successfully complete two semesters of music literature, sending institutions should, to the extent possible, work with receiving institutions to develop transfer options that best serve student needs while maintaining program integrity at the sending and receiving institutions.  A second semester of music literature is automatically transferable when it is part of a sending institution’s approved general education component.  Two-year colleges that offer a single course in music literature may elect to strengthen that course by increasing the weekly contact hours to five as permitted in the Coordinating Board’s Community College General Academic Course Guide Manual.

 

Full Academic Credit

 

            Academic credit shall be granted on a course-for-course basis in the transfer of theory/aural skills, applied music, and ensemble courses and will be accepted at the credit-hour level of the receiving institution.  Full academic credit shall be granted on the basis of comparable courses completed, not on specific numbers of credit hours accrued.

 

General Education Courses

 

            In addition to the course work listed above, the maximum recommended transfer credit from the general education core curriculum is 31-39 semester credit hours.  Students shall complete the general education core curriculum in effect at the institution that will grant the baccalaureate degree.

 

The Associate’s Degree in Music

 

            The field of study curriculum should serve as the basis for structuring the associate’s degree in music.  Each two-year college should determine which courses from its approved general education core curriculum to include with the music field of study curriculum in order to constitute a 66 semester credit hour transfer block.  In order to receive the baccalaureate degree, a transferring student shall complete the general education core at the receiving institution.
