* Courses that are not part of HVCC's A.O.S. major
Notes: This scenario assumes that the student will opt to complete MATH 150 rather than MATH 105, which is the math requirement within the A.O.S. major. (If the student takes MATH 151 at HVCC, it will satisfy both MTH 180 and MTH 182 at Penn College).
Students who do not satisfy all of these general education courses at Hudson Valley Community College will need at least five semesters to earn a bachelor’s degree at Penn College.
In keeping with Penn College policy, the FYE 101 requirement will be waived because the student has transferred 24 or more credits to Penn College.
Heating/Air Conditioning/Refrigeration Technical Services Major Courses
These groups of courses will substitute as a block if satisfactorily completed with a GPA of 2.0 or higher. Courses are not evaluated individually; students completing all of the listed HVCC courses will receive credit for all of the listed PCT courses in their respective semesters.
