Curriculum (CPC) Deficiencies
CPC deficiencies are determined by Admissions at the time of acceptance, when students change majors, and when students return within five years of “stopping out”.
CPC deficiency in English or Mathematics may NOT be satisfied by transfer courses from any other institution. Any student who is identified as CPC deficient in English or Mathematics MUST pass COMPASS or take the required learning support courses in those areas.
CPC deficiencies ONLY apply to students within transfer programs who have graduated (should have graduated) within the past five years. CPC deficiencies are evaluated in five subject areas and can be satisfied as follows:
English: Passing score on COMPASS Exam, ENGL 0099, ENGL 1101
Math: Passing score on COMPASS Exam, MATH 0097, MATH 0099
Science*: BIOL 1010K, CHEM 1151K, GEOL 1121K, GEOL 1123K**, PHSC 1011K, PHSC 1012K***
