General Electives

Any additional courses of 100 level or higher may apply. Physical Education activity credits are limited to a maximum of three (3) credits regardless of distribution area in the DTA degree.

Coursework in FLPC cannot apply to the AA degree program.

No more than 15 credits can be taken from the General Elective area.

Application of Credit

Credits earned through Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Tech Prep/Direct Credit, CLEP, cooperative work experience, military experience, special projects, and course challenge must fall within the following guidelines when awarded:

  1. Credits may be awarded only if the learning experiences fall within the outcomes of the regular curriculum of the college.
  2. Academic transcripts will indicate other credits awarded.
  3. Credits cannot duplicate credits already awarded.
  4. Students should read the degree requirements section of this catalog for information about applying other credit options toward a degree.

The following lists the number of credits that can be applied through other credit options in each degree or certificate program at Clark College:

Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Fine Arts (AFA), and Associate in Science – Transfer (AST) degrees:

  • A maximum of sixty (60) credits earned through AP and/or IB will apply.
  • A maximum of 25% of the degree or certificate may have credits from course challenge and military experience.
  • Students can apply 15 credits in CLEP, Tech Prep/Direct Credit, cooperative work experience, and Special Projects toward an AA, AFA, and AST degree.
  • CLEP, cooperative work experience, and Tech Prep/Direct credits will only apply toward general electives. AP, IB, course challenge, and potentially military experience credits would be allowed in distribution areas.

Articulation Programs

Certain degree programs are offered at Clark College that have been set up in cooperation with four-year institutions. Program tracks that have been approved by Clark’s Instructional Planning Team are eligible for Clark’s Associate in Arts – Option B degree, even if they do not meet the core requirements. Intensive research, planning, and cooperation on the part of multiple institutions have gone into the development of these programs.

Associate in Applied Science – Transfer Degree (AAS-T)

The Associate in Applied Science – Transfer degree (AAS-T) is designed to build upon the technical courses required for job preparation but also includes a college-level General Education component, common in structure for all such degrees. In general, technical degree programs are not designed for transfer to other colleges or universities. However, several four-year colleges and universities have specific bachelor’s degree programs that accept AAS-T degrees. Clark College currently has one AAS-T degree in Early Childhood Education (see the Early Childhood Education program description in this catalog for specific program requirements).

Students seeking to transfer into degree programs other than those specifically designed for the AAS-T are urged to consider the DTA or AS-T in preparation for transfer. Majors outside the specifically designed degrees listed above likely will accept very few of the credits in the AAS-T degree (English composition, college-level math, and other general education courses should transfer).

“Washington 45” – List of One Year Transfer Courses

The list of courses in Washington 45 does not replace the Direct Transfer Agreement, Associate of Science Tracks I and II, or any Major Related Program agreement, nor will it guarantee admission to a four-year institution.

A student who completes courses selected from within the general education categories listed below at a public community, technical, four-year college or university in Washington State will be able to transfer and apply a maximum of 45 term credits toward general education requirement(s) at any other public and most private higher education institutions in the state.1

For transfer purposes, a student must have a minimum grade of C or better (2.0 or above) in each course completed from this list.

Students who transfer Washington 45 courses must still meet a receiving institution’s admission requirements and eventually satisfy all their general education requirements and their degree requirements in major, minor, and professional programs.

“First Year Transfer List” of general education courses:

Note: Although these courses are listed under categories, the actual course may satisfy a different general education category at a receiving institution.
