School of Liberal Arts, 505-428-1370

This certificate, designed for students who are undecided about their course of study, documents the completion of the lower division general education common transfer curriculum consistent with New Mexico state law. This transfer program is designed for students who plan to transfer from SFCC to a public four-year institution in New Mexico upon completion of their freshman and sophomore level general education course work.

While these courses are transferable, many universities prefer students take specific courses and demonstrate competency in certain areas. Students should consult with an academic adviser at that institution to determine the most appropriate course selections.

It is strongly advised that students complete an A.A. or A.S. degree at SFCC before transferring.

NOTE: The New Mexico Higher Education Department and state institutions have developed discipline specific general education transfer modules in Criminal Justice, Early Childhood Education, Business Administration, General Engineering and Teacher Education. Students interested in these degree areas should follow these specific program transfer modules.

Students can earn the following degree related to this certificate:
