  2. 34 semester-hours of career electives that can be satisfied with previously completed military schools, community college or technical school courses/degree, aviation certification, other technical or industry training programs, or aviation related work experience.
  3. And 38 semester-hours of University Core Curriculum (general education) that can be completed from transfer credit from other accredited institutions, including community colleges, CLEP, DANTES, or proficiency testing.
