Foundations Quantitative Requirement and the Phase out of Foundations Symbolic Requirement

Beginning Fall 2018, the Foundations Quantitative (FQ) Requirement will become effective. For all new or returning students, instead of the Foundations Symbolic (FS) requirement, there will be a Foundations Quantitative (FQ) Requirement for any of the AA degrees and the ASNS degree that they wish to pursue.

After Summer 2020, courses will no longer carry the FS designation at WCC (or any of the UH community colleges). Therefore, students who are planning to obtain an AA degree that has an FS requirement must complete their FS requirement by summer 2020.

Foundations Designation Process

The Foundations Board reviews all requests that a course be designated as satisfying an AA degree Foundations requirement. Requests are submitted directly from the Department Chair or Lead Instructor to the Chair of the Foundations Board, Jean Okumura.
