The Associate of Science degree requires completion of a minimum of 60 credit hours. Although students often have the option of entering a career field upon completion of the Associate of Science, this degree plan is primarily designed to provide the first two years of coursework to prepare students for transfer into a related upper-division baccalaureate degree program. The Associate of Science degree is the appropriate degree plan for students who major in fields with more stringent mathematics and mathematics-based science requirements.

Students preparing to transfer to an upper-division baccalaureate degree program should contact an academic advisor in the major field of study at the transfer institution in addition to meeting regularly with an academic advisor at Yavapai College.

The Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) is designed to fulfill  all lower division General Education requirements at the public universities in Arizona. The AGEC-S is the appropriate curriculum for students who major in fields with stringent requirements in mathematics and science.

Upon completion of all requirements of the AGEC-S with a grade of "C" or higher, the student will receive recognition of completion on their Yavapai College transcript. Arizona residents who complete an AGEC-S and who have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher have assured admission upon application to one of the state universities in Arizona.

The AGEC-S also fulfills general education requirements for the Associate of Science degree at Yavapai College. A minimum of twelve credit hours in the AGEC-S certificate must be completed at Yavapai College.

Note: Courses applied to the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) may not be taken for Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) Grading.
