Recommended

Fulfill remainder of associate degree requirements. Choose courses from major listing to fulfill major elective requirements for your program of choice.

B.A. degree candidates need to show language proficiency. Students can fulfill the requirement by either having transfer credit for language at the 112 level at Fisher (102 level at MCC), taking course(s) at Fisher to complete at the 112 level or by taking a language proficiency test through the Department of Modern Languages at Fisher that demonstrates proficiency at the 112 level. The proficiency test does not result in academic credit, as this is not a credit requirement. Transfer coursework will result in academic credit.

Additional Notes

Grade Point Average: 2.0 GPA required for admission consideration to St. John Fisher College. Students must submit a formal transfer application the semester before intended enrollment.
