Additional General Education Courses for TAP Pathway Students
The Creativity and Global Knowledge general education categories provide a means for Connecticut Community College students to fulfill additional general education requirements beyond the 30 credits already agreed upon in the common package in TAP degree programs.
These categories apply ONLY to students who enroll in and complete a TAP/Transfer Ticket degree at a Connecticut Community College and transfer to a CSU or COSC. Each CSU and COSC may develop separate policies regarding the acceptance of these credits for transfer students who do not complete a TAP/Transfer Ticket degree or who never enrolled in a TAP/Transfer Ticket degree.
- Creativity fulfills requirements for CCSU’s Arts & Humanities, ECSU’s Creative Expressions, SCSU’s Creative Drive, and WCSU’s General Education Elective.
- Global Knowledge fulfills requirements for CCSU’s Social Sciences, ECSUs Individuals and Societies, SCSU’s Global Awareness, WCSU’s General Education Elective, and COSC’s Global Understanding.
The courses vetted by each Community College for Creativity and Global Knowledge will be accepted at the four CSUs and COSC (Global Knowledge) as fulfilling the additional general education requirements specified above.
The vetted courses do not need to have equivalents at the receiving CSU or COSC.
Students will demonstrate mastery of the Creativity general education core competency by being able to:
- Convey ideas and express aesthetic values with hands-on, creative activities.
- Demonstrate an understanding of practice in a specific medium or genre.
- Present creative projects to an audience.
