Award: Certificate

Length: Thirty-one credit hour program

Program Purpose: This certificate is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four year school following their studies at SVCC.

Program Description: The general education certificate requires courses usually taken in the first year of a four year degree. Students are urged to learn which courses their transfer schools prefer. Students should also speak with an advisor at that school. Students and their SVCC advisor can then plan their classes to meet their transfer needs.

Admission Requirements: A high school diploma (or equivalent) and satisfactory scores on college placement tests (or equivalents) in English and mathematics are required. If students have deficiencies in English and/or mathematics, developmental courses are available to prepare students for the curriculum.
