Missouri CORE 42

General education courses guaranteed to transfer to any public Missouri college or university

CORE 42 is a statewide general education course of study intended to ensure that all graduates possess a common core of college-level skills and knowledge. CORE 42 also facilitates the transfer of those credits among Missouri’s public institutions of higher education.

CORE 42 is made up of dozens of courses distributed across five knowledge areas. These courses are designated with a Missouri Transfer (MOTR) course number, which guarantees the one-to-one transfer of these courses among all Missouri public institutions of higher education.
