SFCC Diversity Requirement for the A.A. Degree

The intent of the “D” requirement is to expose the student to racial and cultural perspectives beyond the dominant culture of the United States. These courses can be identified in the quarterly class schedule by a ^D following the course title.

While all ^D designated courses fulfill SFCC and SCC graduation requirements and generally transfer to baccalaureate institutions, they may not fulfill your chosen institution's Diversity or International Studies requirements. Check with the institution you plan to attend to see what they will accept. To assist your schedule planning, qualifying courses are listed.
