PASSPORT BLOCK OVERVIEW

The Passport block is intended to enable seamless transfer of general education requirements for students transferring into and out of San Juan College. San Juan College students can earn a Passport in as few as 31 credits as long as they earn a minimum grade of "C" in all courses counted towards a Passport. We encourage students to work with Advising to ensure completion of their Passport block. Students who earn a Passport block automatically fulfill all the New Mexico General Education requirements as well.
