Notes


*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC.

Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.

**This course can be used to fulfill both the Arts and Humanities General Education requirement and the Diversity requirement. Additional English classes that can be used to fulfill both requirements include ENGL 206 ENGL 207 , ENGL 218 , ENGL 219 , ENGL 224 , and ENGL 260 .
