Raritan Valley Community College Footnotes
1 Select a course from the appropriate category of the General Education list.
2 Mathematics by official placement test. Students must complete math through MATH 152 Calculus II. Students who have completed 8 credits of math, at least through MATH 152 Calculus II, are not required to take a third or fourth course in math, but may substitute a science elective.
3 Students who pass the technological competency test (no credit) may take any General Education course.

Rider University Footnotes
Ʊ – Students have a number of options to satisfy this requirement; courses will be evaluated on an individual basis.
Raritan Valley students interested in the College of Continuing Studies (CCS) at Rider should contact that division directly.
∞ - If both Math-112 & Math-113 are taken at RVCC; both courses combined will count for a total of 4 credits and Rider MTH-105-Algebra & Trigonometry. This is also reflected on New Jersey Transfer.

Requirements are subject to change. This Advising Guide is best used in consultation with an advisor.
