* To receive credit for this assignment, transfer students are only required to use the general HCCdegree plans [either Associate in Science (AS) or Associate of Arts (AA) in Multidisciplinary Studies degree] listed in the link above. However, if transfer students are interested in creating a more precise plan tied to a major, they MAY consider using the specific AA/AS degree plans listed in the Academic Division, Business, Engineering, Computer Science, and Visual & Performing Arts sections at https://www.hccs.edu/support-services/advising/degree-plans/2020-2021/#d.en.313438Links to an external site..

Step 4: Decide the number of courses to be taken each semester and when to take those courses based on your own timeframe. Copy the course information from the HCC degree plan selected and paste it to the worksheet provided. Plan until you transfer or until you graduate from HCC. Please be reminded:

  • You are NOT required to specify the course numbers of your electives. Simply copy and paste the information as listed (e.g. HIST #3##: American History Elective).
  • A prerequisite (e.g. ENGL 1301: Composition I) must be completed before taking an advanced course (e.g. ENGL 1302: Composition II)
  • A co-requisite (e.g. BIO 1306: Biology of Science – Lecture) must be taken at the same time as another course (e.g. BIO 1106: Biology of Science – Lab).

Upon completing the degree plan assignment, you are highly encouraged to consult with your assigned advisor to verify that the courses selected align with your academic/career goals. The advisor can also help you with choosing specific elective courses based on university requirements.(https://www.hccs.edu/support-services/transfers/Links to an external site.).
