*Most institutions have a “wellness” requirement of 2 to 3 credits. Some institutions either require or allow physical education classes to meet this requirement but in many, if not most, cases PED 103 is the transferable class.

**Engineers will take a fair amount of science courses but this science elective should reflect the receiving engineering college’s requirement for citizenship of the engineer to the environment or humanity and not just the science directly and specifically pursuant to the engineer’s field.
