Associate of Science

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (A.S.)

The Associate of Science (A.S.) degree includes courses traditionally taught during the first two years of a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree program.

The A.S. is a two-year academic degree designed to transfer to a four-year degree program, limited to 60 credits.

  • An Associate of Science without designation is designed to transfer into math and science degree programs.
  • An Associate of Science degree with a program designation (Degree with Designation) is designed to transfer into a specific four-year program aligned with a Statewide Articulation Agreement.

DEGREE PREREQUISITES:

Upon admittance to MCC, all students entering any one of the College’s degree programs or those entering ENG 121, or any college-level math will be required to take the ACCUPLACER® assessment test. Alternatively, if taken with the last 5 years, documentation of ACCUPLACER® scores from another two-year Colorado college or ACT® scores of Reading 17, English 18, and Math 23 will meet the assessment requirement.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS:

  • Minimum grade of "C" for each course
  • Minimum Cumulative MCC GPA of 2.0
