What if I took a lower division course at another institution--can it count toward an upper division requirement?

Generally, no. Sometimes students will take "Advanced Painting" or "Modern Art History" at a community college. Even though the titles seem to be the same as our upper division classes, you do not receive upper division credit. Upper division courses are those at the 300 and 400 level. Community college courses are at the 100 and 200 level. If you feel that you have acquired the skills and knowledge of the upper division course you should speak to your advisor about the challenge procedure.
