Approved Elective List

Below are the approved elective courses for all degrees at FRCC unless otherwise specified1. While these courses are considered generally transferable, a student’s major at a four-year college/university may limit what credit will be accepted and applied toward degree requirements at that institution.

Students may choose to complete courses listed as GT “Guaranteed Transfer” to better ensure transferability to a four-year college/university. These courses are designated in this catalog. A list of gtPathways courses can be found here.

The statement “or higher” does not include specialized courses.
