The Gordon Rule

State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.030, the Gordon Rule, requires that students complete with grades of C or better 12 credits in designated courses in which the student is required to demonstrate college-level writing skills through multiple assignments and six credits of mathematics course work at the level of college algebra or higher. These courses must be completed successfully (grades of C or better) prior to the receipt of an A.A. degree and prior to entry into the upper division of a Florida public university.

For graduation with the Associate in Arts degree from Valencia, the Gordon Rule requirements can be satisfied by completing either the writing and mathematics requirements listed below or the Interdisciplinary Studies Program and the Mathematics requirements.
