* Choose
RIT Perspective Courses from this list that also satisfy the MCC requirement.

For example,
SOC 101 = RIT Social Perspective and SUNY Social Science

ENG 105 = RIT Artistic Perspective and SUNY Humanities

Foreign Language course = RIT Global Perspective and SUNY Foreign Language


See
RIT Course Equivalencies.

AP, IB, CLEP, DUAL ENROLLMENT, & TRANSFER COURSES: Credits showing as accepted by MCC may not be transferable.
See Transfer and Test Credit. Contact RIT with questions.

Start thinking about what you would like as your Immersion or Minor at RIT.


GPA of 3.0 or higher is advised for acceptance to RIT.
GPA of 2.0 is required for MCC graduation.


Optical Systems Technology AAS (OT01) will be the degree the student is audited against and awarded from MCC. See the Optics Department Chair for any needed course substitutions.
