Associate Degree Audit

Attention:  All students planning to complete an Associate Degree

Make sure you have done a Degree Audit i.e. a checklist of the requirements.  A paper copy of the checklist can be found in Student Services (Room 211).

Common mistakes to avoid:

  1. Registering in too many courses for a category e.g. too many Arts courses.  These courses become redundant, cannot be counted to the Associate Degree, and you waste time and money doing them.
  2. Not registering in prerequisite courses first.  Most second-year courses have prerequisites that must be completed first.
  3. Postponing English 099 or 100 too long if you have not received a “C.” You may find that you have to stay one extra semester to complete the 6 credits that are  required.
  4. Postponing Math Science requirements too long for AD Arts e.g. a Lab course which meets 3 days a week.
  5. Not understanding precluded credits e.g. Math 100 and Math 110 count only as one course – 3 credits; Math 111 and Math 113 also count as one course.
  6. Not having a cum GPA of 2.0 – You may have to repeat a course to improve cum GPA. A cum GPA of 1.98 will not get you an Associate Degree.

See a counselor for a degree audit. It may save you problems later.
