Its purpose is to help the prospective Mount Saint Mary s University student plan a course of study that will facilitate a more effective transfer into Mount Saint Mary s University. Mount Saint Mary s University accepts a maximum of 70 transferable community college units that may be applied toward the units required for a baccalaureate degree. This Agreement contains three sections: Section I - lists relevant information about MSMU General Studies Requirements. The General Studies requirements at MSMU include five areas: Communication Skills; Critical Thinking; Arts & Sciences; Modern Language, and Religious Studies and Philosophy. Listed under each area are equivalent courses offered at Cerritos College.
