Students should consult with the University of Providence to determine the additional core courses that are required to satisfy the University Core curriculum.
Students transferring to UP with 60 or more transfer credits are required to complete only one 300-level ILC.
Students with 30 or more transfer credits do not need to take the Corps of Discovery course or any of the distribution courses.
Some students may need preliminary math and writing courses before enrolling in the college-level courses. These courses may increase the total number of credits. Students should review their math and writing placement with an advisor before planning their schedules.
Students interested in completing a Certificate of General Studies, Associate of Arts (AA), or Associate of Science (AS) from Great Falls College before transferring should work with an advisor when selecting options to fulfill category requirements.
Students who have earned an AA or AS degree are waived from all lower division courses in UP's Core Curriculum. Prerequisites still apply, which means a student may still need to take ENG 117 (pre-req to upper division Writing), PHL 101 (pre-req to PHL 301) and/or TRL 201 (pre-req to TRL 301).
