ASSOCIATE IN GENERAL STUDIES

Program Overview

These requirements apply to students who first enrolled for Fall 2020 or later. Students who enrolled prior to Fall 2020 have the option of upgrading their degree plan to access the AGS degree option.

The Associate in General Studies degree is a flexible, individually designed option for those individuals who do not intend to transfer but who can benefit from having earned a degree, whether for career purposes or for personal satisfaction. Students should be aware that transfer options for the degree as a whole are limited. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with an academic advisor to make course selections and to learn about possible transfer options.
