Course Prerequisites and Advisories:

Courses in a program of study may have prerequisites or advisories; that is, courses that must or should be completed before taking that course. Please check for prerequisites or advisories by clicking on the course numbers in the Program Requirements section.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.


The one unit of LIR 10 or LIR 30 also satisfies the Area I, Option A General Education (G.E.) requirement.

If the Math graduation requirement has not been satisfied within the G.E. units, it is a separate and additional requirement.

Transfer students are strongly encouraged to complete G.E. option B or C.
