Note:


*GOVT 2378 is an academic unique needs course approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB).  The course is offered only at SAC; however all of the other Alamo Colleges have agreed to count it as a “substitution” credit toward the 18 required hours in Political Science.

**Students may take any foreign language offered at that college provided that if they take more than one semester of a language, the subsequent courses are in the same language.

***If you are planning to transfer to Texas State, this course may not count towards degree requirements.

Notes:


A course may be used only once to fulfill degree requirements.

The student is encouraged to carefully examine requirements at the transfer institution.  Requirements vary from institution to institution and can change from one year to the next.
