Students are not admitted directly to the Associate of Science, however, students in Science Studies or the Bachelor of Science degree program can graduate with the Associate of Science degree once all program requirements are met.
To be eligible for an Associate of Science degree you must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 18 courses. Please note that not all science courses are offered every semester. Therefore, it is important to carefully plan your courses in a sequential manner, paying particular attention to course prerequisites. Associate of Science students should consult with the science advisor, or an educational advisor to ensure that they select the appropriate science courses for their particular career direction.
The following is the Associate of Science program outline. Students wishing to complete the program in four semesters should follow the suggested outline below. Students who do not follow the suggested outline will take longer to complete the program.
