Notes:

1. This statewide transfer articulation agreement in Chemistry does not fulfill requirements for the gtPathways general education curriculum or the Associate of Science degree prior to transfer; however, this agreement does guarantee a student, if admitted, junior standing and completion of the baccalaureate degree within an additional 60 semester hours at the receiving institution.

2. Completion of the receiving institution’s lower division general education requirements is fulfilled only under the condition that one gtPathways-approved course in arts and humanities (GT-AH1GT-AH2GT-AH3GT-AH4) and one gtPathways-approved course in social and behavioral sciences (GT-SS1GT-SS2, or GT-SS3) are successfully completed at the receiving institution within the first 30 hours or 12 calendar months.

3. Students transferring to a 4-yr college/university under this Chemistry agreement are encouraged to ‘reverse’ transfer the one gtPathways course in arts and humanities and the one gtPathways course in social and behavioral sciences (Note #2 above) back to their community college in order to complete the gtPathways general education program and to earn their Associate of Science degree with a Chemistry designation.
