The intent of the “D” requirement is to expose the student to racial and cultural perspectives
beyond the dominant culture of the United States. These courses can be identified in the quarterly
class schedule by a ^D following the course title.
While all ^D designated courses fulfill SFCC and SCC graduation requirements and generally
transfer to baccalaureate institutions, they may not fulfill your chosen institution's Diversity
or International Studies requirements. Check with the institution you plan to attend to see what
they will accept. To assist your schedule planning, qualifying courses are listed.
