To be awarded an A.S. degree, a student must complete:
- All the major requirements.
- Additional units to meet the college graduation requirements.
NOTE:Only CHEM 1A is required for the A.S. degree. Transfer students may need to take additional chemistry courses to complete the requirements for a B.S. degree. Please consult with a counselor to determine campus-specific requirements.
Additional math may be required.
Recommended Electives: Choose those general education requirements outside the major which may apply toward the bachelor’s degree requirements at the four-year institution where you transfer.
