For this degree, specific grade requirements vary from course to course and among transfer institutions.  The student will need to check with transfer advisors.  Some baccalaureate institutions require physics with calculus.  It is your responsibility to check your baccalaureate institution's specific major requirements the year prior to transferring.

Program planning is based on information available at the time of preparation. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with their LCC advisor and with the college to which they plan to transfer for specific requirements. Consult the LCC catalog for LCC graduation requirements.

Most four-year universities require one year of a single foreign language as a graduation requirement.
