Degree: Associate in Science
Plan 11AB-CIT

The following courses are recommended for students who have not decided upon a specific four-year college or university. Once a transfer school is selected, students are strongly encouraged to meet with an Academic Success Advisor to determine courses at CLC which will also meet the transfer requirements. To complete any transfer degree, students should follow the college requirements for associate degrees that transfer.

All course prerequisites must be met. Additionally, students are required to select one course from the International/Multicultural (I/M) list to meet graduation requirements. A grade of C or better is required for all English course requirements.

^ The credit for CLC 120, College Success Seminar, is an institutional requirement for graduation. It is not part of the program requirements but must be completed with a D or better.

* Certain classes are only offered specific semesters. Check the course scheduling guide.

** A student should consult an Academic Success Advisor to determine the correct selection of math courses (7 credit hour minimum). The math course selection for this degree will vary depending on the student’s 1) choice of 4-year institution to which to transfer and 2) math competency prior to enrolling at CLC. Depending on a student’s transfer goals or math competency, a student may need to enroll in additional math courses. Math Competency: If a student does not meet the prerequisite to enroll in MTH 145, lower level math courses may be required. Students should begin taking math courses in the first semester. MTH 102 and MTH 108 do not apply toward the requirements of the associate degree. Students who qualify for MTH 145 can complete this degree in 61 credit hours.

Note: This plan includes recommendations for students who plan to major in this subject at a four year school. Students who follow this plan will meet the requirements of a general transfer degree (A.A. or A.S). The CLC degree earned will be a general transfer degree, not a degree in this specific area of study.
