Associate of Science
The Associate of Science (AS) degree is intended for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. Completion of the AS degree requires a minimum of 64 credit hours of approved courses.
The AS degree differs from the Associate of Arts (AA) degree in the level of mathematics and science coursework that is required. Students meeting the prerequisites for MTH 150 (Precalculus) or MTH201 (Analytic Geometry & Calculus I) in their first semester can expect to complete the AS degree in four semesters. Students requiring additional math preparation prior to MTH150 will require additional semesters to complete the degree.
This academic map is a suggested semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AA degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses, and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. To ensure that milestone courses are completed, it is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.
|First Semester (Fall)
|History or Government||3|
|Second Semester (Spring)
|Third Semester (Fall)
|Fourth Semester (Spring)
|Social/Behavioral Science Elective||3|
|Total Hours for Degree||64|
*It is strongly recommended that students successfully complete the Milestone courses as planned on the academic map to ensure completion of the degree in two years. In addition, if students do not successfully complete the Milestone course(s), they are strongly encouraged to re-enroll in the course(s) the following semester.
**Shaded courses must be completed in the sequence indicated. Failure to complete these courses in the appropriate sequence will result in extension of time to complete the AS degree. In particular, failure to complete MTH 201 (with a C or above) by the end of the second semester will result in an extension of time to completion of the AS degree of a full year.
^Please refer to the college catalog and course descriptions for pre/co-requisite and placement information. You can only register for these courses if you have met the prerequisite, placed into the course and/or enroll in the co-requisite course(s).
The majority of students enrolled in our AS degree program plan to transfer to engineering programs at either Missouri S&T or the University of Missouri-Columbia. Since specific program requirements vary based on engineering discipline and transfer institution, all students are encouraged to connect with academic advisors at their intended transfer institution early in the program.
