Moravian College requires all students to complete a distribution of liberal studies courses in addition to the major requirements. If a Northampton Community College course meets a requirement in LinC, you will see letter-and-numeral designations in the “Meets LinC Guideline” column of the course equivalencies.
You may transfer up to 64 credits into your degree program at Moravian College. Only those credits earned with a grade of C (not C–) or better are transferable. Some courses may meet Learning in Common (LinC) requirements outlined on the following pages; some may transfer as electives; and some may meet requirements in your major. Courses not in this brochure probably do not transfer, and some departments prefer the major requirements be completed at Moravian. When in doubt, ask an advisor.
