Associate in General Studies Degree Requirements

The Associate in General Studies (A.G.S.) degree is granted to students who choose not to meet the more traditional requirements of other associate degree programs. Students may select from a variety of learning experiences and/or explore specialized interests in greater depth. Students are advised that the A.G.S. degree is not considered a transfer degree and may or may not transfer, all or in part, to senior institutions.

To complete an A.G.S. degree, students must:

  1. Complete a minimum of 64 earned semester hours. Note that “0” level courses may NOT be used toward completion of the 64 semester hour minimum with the exception of MATH 098.
  2. Complete a minimum of 15 earned semester hours in college transfer courses and/or in one occupational area.
  3. Successfully complete at least one course from five of the following seven areas: communications, humanities, social science, math, science, health/physical education, and vocational specialty courses.
