In selecting courses, students are expected to follow the curriculum outline for their major and specialization. Students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university are urged to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the institution and major department to which they intend to transfer. With careful planning, students may be able to meet both general education requirements and prerequisites for the major with the same course(s), allowing greater flexibility in selecting electives. Students should consult their advisor or counselor to select courses most appropriate for their curriculum. Many Thomas Nelson courses are transferable as general electives even if they do not fulfill core requirements.
AAA/AAS Degrees and Certificates:
In selecting courses, students are expected to follow the curriculum outline for their major and specialization. Where appropriate, students may select courses from lists of approved courses provided by their division office to meet requirements in the major. AAS/AAA degrees generally are not designed for transfer, but students can increase the transferability of selected applied degree programs by substituting transfer courses where appropriate to meet program requirements.
Student Outcomes Assessment Requirements
It is Thomas Nelson’s responsibility to measure the effectiveness of academic services, which makes it necessary for students to take part in assessment activities such as exit interviews, surveys, licensure examinations, prepare portfolios, or complete an activity that demonstrates the achievement of program and/or general education competencies. In some instances, the College may select a group of students to participate in an assessment activity, while others may be assessed as part of course requirements. Assessment information becomes part of the institution’s requirement for graduation; all information remains confidential and may only be used by the College for the purpose of institutional improvement.
