Important Notes/Considerations:

  1. The curriculum guide above assumes that the students place into college-level reading, writing, and math.
  2. STEM and Education majors are required to take 3 additional math credits, 3 additional science credits, 3 less social science credits and 3 less humanities credits.
  3. Education majors should take science classes that have labs (= 4+ credit hours)
  4. Math should be toward the end of the two years so that students can take advantage of the math available at the high school before they take college-level math. (Reason: they will place higher)
  5. The electives recommended for the first term are INST 101 Success in College and INST 105 Library Research Skills.
  6. Individual high schools may suggest specific general education electives if they offer them through the high school.
  7. DACC Academic Advisor, Amie Musk, is available to help students decide what general education courses will meet their career and education goals. Contact her at 217-443-8750 for advice.
  8. DACC Advisement & Counseling webpage also has information on course transferability.
