A.A. CORE Courses

The general education core course requirement applies to all students who are entering into any programs under the 2022-23 catalog year and beyond, regardless of prior postsecondary coursework. This includes transfer students, students entering with prior postsecondary coursework, and students from out-of-state.

Under the requirement, students must successfully complete at least one core course from each of the general education subject areas: Communications, Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences, pursuant to s.1007.25(3), Florida Statutes, and SBE Rule 6A.14.0303.

Below are the designated CORE courses at Eastern Florida. Note: Successful completion of a course for which a CORE COURSE is an immediate prerequisite, or the equivalent honors course, will satisfy the CORE course requirement. View the EFSC Catalog for details on how CORE courses fit into the A.A. degree's general education requirements.
