Students are highly encouraged to have completed all six of these courses prior to admission in the BA in Social Sciences Online program.

Students are encouraged to research course transferability on Assist.org and consult with their Academic Advisor as soon as possible. Students will be provided with a PAWS Report through their myCoyote Account which will highlight any deficiencies in their required courses.
