Associate of General Studies

The Associate of General Studies degree program allows pre-baccalaureate studies in many areas. (To ensure the transferability of coursework, students should complete all required courses with a grade of “C” or better.) The degree also provides an opportunity for students with specific workforce needs to complete an associate degree not met by other degree options. A minimum of 12 hours must be taken at the 2000 level. Additionally, a minimum of 15 hours must be taken in residence. A student may not be awarded the Associate of General Studies more than once.
