June 22, 2018
The following semester-by-semester plan reflects the requirements to complete this Associate of Science in Liberal Arts and Science degree in two years. Each student’s experience will vary slightly, as this plan does not include developmental courses or transfer courses. Math and English placement will be based on the student’s Accuplacer or ACT scores.

This plan assumes the student is prepared to take the courses listed. If prerequisites or developmental courses are required they should be taken in the first semester, and additional semesters may be required to complete this degree. However, courses should be scheduled in the sequential order as shown here.

How to Use the Graduation Map

Full-time? Part-time? Starting in the Spring or Summer?
Just take courses in the order shown in the Graduation Map starting with Semester 1.

Semester 1 - Fall (16 Credit Hours)
