2. Area of Concentration (SEE BELOW FOR COMPUTER SCIENCE REQUIREMENTS):

a. Two or more courses completing one or more sequences in a specified subject area such as accounting, geography, psychology, physical education, physics, or any other specific subject area except those listed in “b” and “c” below;

OR

b. Four or more courses, completing one or more sequences, in the specific subject areas of biology, chemistry, or mathematics;

OR

c. Four or more courses in a broad field, other than those listed in “b” above, such as business, general science, or social science for the student who does not desire to pursue a specific subject area.

3. General Education 41-45 semester hours (Courses in the student’s area of concentration do not count toward those requirements.)

4. Constitution Requirement - Richland Community College requires having met the Constitution Requirement in order to receive the Basic or Advanced Certificate for any occupational-oriented program. Illinois law requires anyone graduating from Richland with an associate’s degree to pass an examination covering American patriotism and the principles of representative government, as well as the proper use and display of the American flag. The test also covers the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Illinois Constitution. The requirement may be satisfied in one of two ways:

a. If the required examination was taken and passed in an Illinois high school, the student’s high school transcript must verify that the requirement has been met. (Holders of an Illinois GED certificate may submit an official copy of their test scores or verification from the Superintendent of the Regional Office of Education through which the GED certificate was issued);

or

b. Students may obtain study material from the LRC and take the examination through the Testing Center, Room W124.

5. Total Credits Required 60 semester hours in courses numbered 100 and above.

(Students transferring credit to Richland should see regulations concerning transfer students.)

6. Cumulative Grade Point Average - 2.00 (“C”) or better for all work applicable toward the degree that was completed at Richland.
