Degree: Associate in Science
Plan 11AB-BIO

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.

*  Some transfer institutions may accept sequential courses (I and II) only if both courses are taken. Check with transfer institution.

** Recommended course, but check with transfer institution.

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.
