1Students who seek an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree should take the history sequence required by the senior institution. For a TBR university, one course in Tennessee History may be substituted for one course in American History.

2Students may complete MATH 2050 - Calculus-Based Probability and Statistics  instead of MATH 2010 - Introduction to Linear Algebra .

Students are encourages to complete a course in Mechanics of Materials, also known as Strength of Materials, before transferring to a university. This course is not offered by Cleveland State.

Courses in engineering technology do not fulfill any of the requirements for the Civil Engineering Emphasis: University Parallel Major, A.S. (TTP).

Although it is possible to complete the B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering in four semesters after earning the Associate’s degree, students typically need five or six semesters to complete requirements.
