SLCC General Catalog 20132014
Mathematics AS
Associate of Science (AS)
63 credits minimum
Program Description
An Associate of Science degree can be earned through the study of Mathematics. It requires a minimum of 63 credit hours of coursework, including 22 hours of mathematics courses and 8 hours of physics courses. All classes are transferable to other schools in the state system of higher education and most other universities and colleges. These courses will prepare a student for completion of a mathematics or mathematics education degree at a four year institution. Students in this program also complete General Education requirements.
Transfer/Articulation Information
Requirements at fouryear colleges and universities are subject to change; ongoing planning is essential. Admission into a major program at a transfer institution depends upon the receiving institution’s requirements for that major. Some major programs are restricted and require special application as well as a competitive GPA. See an Academic Advisor at both SLCC and the intended receiving institution for specific articulation information.

Advising Notes
Cooperative Education is SLCC’s strategy for recognizing and rewarding new learning associated with studyrelated employment in a business, industrial or government work environment. Credit earned for MATH 2000 is applied toward graduation requirements as a mathematics elective credit.
The semesters in which courses are taught are listed in course descriptions. Students should check the semester class schedule for day/evening/weekend availability and modifications caused by varying enrollment.
