Electives for Liberal Art Majors

The liberal arts programs at NCC require 66 credits, including electives. The number of elective credits you need depends on your major (AA or AS) and how you fulfill your other attribute categories.

  • Any credit-level course can be counted as a general elective.
  • If you have completed the requirements for a specific attribute category and take additional courses within that category, they will be counted as elective credits.
  • If a course does not fit into any required attribute category, it can only be counted as an elective.
