Associate in General Studies (AGS)

(90 credits)

Program Description

The Associate in General Studies (AGS) gives students the opportunity to design their own educational programs. This degree was developed as a non-transfer degree so students could have more flexibility in selecting courses to best fit their interests or emphasize particular areas of study not regularly offered by the college.

The fact that the AGS is not designed as a transfer degree does not mean an AGS graduate cannot transfer to a four-year college or university. However, students should be aware that their transcripts will be subjected to a course-by-course analysis to determine how many courses will be accepted by the four-year institution.

Students seeking this degree must have prior approval from an instructional Dean or the Vice President of Instruction and must design their AGS programs under the supervision of an advisor.
