Course Transfer Equivalencies

General Education Courses

For those who meet the Transfer Requirements, the following course equivalencies apply:

Course Number Course Title Number of Credits Course Number Course Title Number of Credits
CMPT 101 Personal Computer Concepts & Applications I * 3 CSC 124 Information, Technology & Society 3
MATH 150 College Algebra & Trig I 3 MTH 180 College Algebra & Trig I 3
ENGL 101 English Comp. I * 3 ENL 111 English Comp. I 3
  Fitness Elective * 1 FIT Fitness Elective 1

ENGL 102 English Comp. II * 3 ENL 201 Technical Communication
(Credit will be given via course substitution)
3

* Courses that are not part of HVCC’s A.O.S. major

Notes: This scenario assumes that the student will opt to take MATH 150 rather than MATH 105, which is built into the A.O.S. program. (HVCC's MATH 151, will satisfy both MTH 180 and MTH 182 at Penn College.)

Students who do not satisfy most or 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.

HVAC Technology Major Courses

These groups of courses will substitute as a block. Major-specific courses are not evaluated individually; students completing all of the listed courses from Hudson Valley Community College will receive credit for all of the listed Penn College courses in their respective semesters.

*Satisfy Commercial Refrigeration Elective requirement
