Programs of study (curricula) designate specific courses that must be taken to satisfy requirements.  When elective courses are required as specified in curriculum guides, students may select from the following list of courses. Electives may be completed by selecting any of the following courses. Unless specifically indicated in your curriculum, the following electives will meet the requirements for CVCC associate degrees, certificates, diplomas and career studies certificates for the category of courses listed. Students may not use the same course to satisfy more than one curriculum requirement.

As requirements of four-year institutions may vary, students in the Associate of Arts and Sciences and the Associate of Science (transfer) programs should consult a CVCC counselor, transfer guides, and prospective four-year colleges and universities to select appropriate courses to meet transfer requirements.

*Note: Some of these courses have prerequisites.

Any of the following may satisfy this requirement at CVCC. If you plan to transfer, please consult with a counselor or prospective four-year institutions before selecting electives.
