*Transitional Studies courses are listed under the English, mathematics, human development, and chemistry sections in the Schedule of Classes and begin with the number 0 or 00. These courses are used to determine full-time or part-time status for financial aid and athletic eligibility; however, credits earned are shown as “0” on the student’s academic transcripts and cannot be applied toward fulfillment of a degree or certificate. Grades earned in TS courses are not computed in the student’s GPA.

*All Transitional Math courses have been redesigned. Please contact Academic Advising at

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions or wish to learn more about our degrees and programs.
