Degree: Associate in Arts
Plan 13AB-PSY

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.

* PSY 121 is a prerequisite for all 200-level Psychology courses.

The Bachelor of Arts/Science degree at many four-year institutions may require foreign language at the college level. Students who are planning to transfer should meet with an Academic Success Advisor or speak with the admissions office of the transfer school to identify the foreign language requirement for the intended major. 

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.
