NVCC General Education Requirements
(including the TAP Framework 30)
With a few exceptions, all programs at NVCC will contain courses from all Core Competencies. See particular program requirements
for program-specific requirements in how these competency areas will be met. Generally any given course can only be used to satisfy
one competency area, even if it appears in multiple areas. If the program requirement is an “elective” from the competency, any
course listed in that group may be used. Courses “taken sequentially” can be taken in any order as long as prerequisites are met.
Note: Letter H appears in all NVCC course numbers; it is the code letter for our college in the CT Community College system. Since
it is redundant for our college, the H is not reproduced below. The * denotes the Common Course Numbering; courses with the * all
have the same number as similar courses at other community colleges in Connecticut, though the other colleges will insert their
appropriate code letter.
