COURSE REQUIREMENTS

The Associate in Arts program must contain a basic core of general education courses. The core must include at least one course from each of the following areas: humanities/fine arts, social/behavioral sciences, natural sciences/mathematics, and oral communications.

At least 25% of the total semester hours of a student's curriculum must be earned at FDTC for a degree or diploma. Requirements for specific majors at senior institutions may vary. Therefore, it is the responsibility of each student to plan a program of study to meet the requirements of the college to which the student expects to transfer. It is strongly recommended that students consult the college/university to which they plan to transfer to ensure that courses taken at Florence-Darlington Tech meet the senior institution's requirements for the desired four-year degree.
