A "C" or better grade is required in ENGL 100 and all Social Science courses including the capstone course.

A student exempted from ENGL 100 must substitute a three credit unrestricted elective. The course should be selected in consultation with the student’s advisor.

HSTY 225 & 233 satisfy the SUNY GEN ED American History area only if a student has received an 85 or higher score on the NYS Regents US History & Government Exam.

Mathematics Elective: Select from MATH 132, 135, 200 or 201.

NOTE: Students intending to transfer to a four year psychology major should work closely with their advisor to ensure that appropriate courses are selected. The psychology faculty have developed specific recommendations for the social science capstone; social science electives (based on area of interest in psychology); math and science courses; and unrestricted electives requirements.

Unrestricted Electives: Courses should be selected in consultation with the student’s advisor and should be based on requirements at the intended four-year transfer institution. Up to 3 FITN credits may be used toward Unrestricted Electives requirements.

*Grade of C or better is required
