- At the discretion of the Department Chair, courses that are not equivalent in both credit hours and content of required courses within an academic major, may be substituted for/accepted as technical electives.
- A student who has earned an associate degree will be considered to have met all associate-level general education requirements, unless any course(s) are prerequisites to coursework within the academic major.
