Attention:  All students planning to complete an Associate Degree

Attention:  All students planning to complete an Associate Degree

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

Common mistakes to avoid:

  1. Registering in too many courses for a category eg too many Arts courses.  These courses become redundant and you waste time and money doing them.
  2. Not registering in Pre-requisite courses first.  Most Second year courses have pre-requisites that must be completed first.
  3. Postponing English too long.  You may find that you have to stay 1 extra semester to complete the 6 credits that are  required.
  4. Postponing Math Science requirements too long for AD Arts eg  a  Lab course which meets 3 days a week.
  5. Not understanding precluded credits eg Math 100 and Math 110 count only as 1 course – 3 credits; Math 111 and Math 113 also count as 1 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.
