Thanks to everyone whose has answered my post.

I took a closer look at the requirements and 17 units are in math.
Of all these courses, my community college has three equivalent 
courses that will transfer.  As you can see from the list, I don't 
_have_ to take one of the two that will transfer but it will be more 
productive to do so.  I like math but I haven't taken the calculus 
before.

The required math courses are:

MATH 142 Discrete Structures I: 3 units
MATH 161 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I: 4 units (transferable)
MATH 211 Calculus and Analytic Geometry II: 4 units (transferable)
MATH 342 Discrete Structures II: 3 units

And I have to pick one from this list:

MATH 222 Linear Algebra: 3 units (transferable)
MATH 231 Differential Equations: 3 units
MATH 261 Calculus and Analytic Geometry III: 4 units (transferable)
MATH 306 Number Theory: 3 units
MATH 316 Graph Theory: 3 units
MATH 352 Numerical Analysis: 3 units
MATH 406 Combinatorics: 3 units
MATH 416 Graph Theory: 3 units
MATH 470 Mathematical Modelling: 3 units

This is why I asked, because I can take the equivalent courses at my 
college and have them transfer.  I still have plenty of general 
education courses to finish.  I also have to take these core CS 
courses (41 units)

CS 150 Introduction to Programming: 4 units (transferable)
CS 180 Programming Paradigms: 4 units
CS 250 Computer Organization: Software: 3 units (transferable)
CS 251 Computer Organization: Hardware: 3 units
CS 254 Data Structures: 3 units
CS 310 Systems Programming: 3 units
CS 354 Algorithm Analysis: 3 units
CS 355 Database Management Systems: 3 units
CS 410 Computer Architecture: 3 units
CS 450 Operating Systems: 3 units
CS 454 Theory of Computation: 3 units
CS 460 Programming Languages: 3 units
CS 470 Software Design and Development: 3 units

and choose 9 units from:

CS 340 Computer Security: 3 units
CS 360 Object Oriented Programming: 3 units
CS 375 Computer Graphics: 3 units
CS 385 Selected Topics: 1-4 units
CS 390 Colloquium: 1 units
CS 452 Compiler Design and Construction: 3 units
CS 465 Data Communications: 3 units
CS 480 Artificial Intelligence: 3 units
CS 495 Special Studies: 3 units
CS 496 Senior Seminar: 3 units
CS 497 Internship: 3 units
