Course Evaluation Plan and Recommendations

  • In order to maximize course transfer and expedite progression to graduation, students should take the following courses:
    • MAT 201 – Calculus I as a mathematics elective
    • CIT 130 – Object-Oriented Programming: Java, not CIT 161
    • Complete the following courses as general electives at CCAC
      • CIT 125 – Web Development
      • Three (3) credits of either humanities, social science, art, foreign language, or applied art that transfers to Penn College
      • If necessary, either MAT 111, MAT 142, or MAT 147 as prerequisites to MAT 201
    • Complete CIT 220 – Unix/Linux Operating System as one of the restricted electives
    • Complete either ACC 104 – Financial Accounting or BUS 103 – Principles of Management as an accounting or business elective
