NOTE: To ensure that transfer students have the same essential foundation in sustainability issues and building materials as students enrolling from Penn College's two year majors, transfer students will be required to complete ACH 262 (Sustainability: Building/Living Green) and either ACH 119 (Building Materials I) or BCT 117 (Construction Materials and Applications I) in their first semester after transferring. Successful completion of these courses will prepare students for the upper-level courses required in the remainder of the program.
