Associate of Science

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.
