Associate of Science (Engineering)

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 61 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.

Transfer Institutions

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.

Academic Maps

The downloadable academic maps below are suggested semester-by-semester schedules of courses based upon the AS 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 these maps do not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.

Associate Degree Nursing

Academic Map

The two-year Associate Degree in Nursing program, housed at the Main Campus in Moberly, provides a combination of subject matter and clinical experiences designed to prepare a person to provide high-quality, safe, effective, patient-centered care to individuals or groups of individuals with well-defined health problems.

Upon successful completion of the program, the student is eligible to apply to take the National Council of Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses. Missouri Nursing Practice Act, Section 335.006, provides additional criteria for eligibility to apply for licensure to practice nursing. Successful completion of the program does not guarantee eligibility to take the licensing exam. Satisfactory performance on the examination will qualify the student for licensure as a registered nurse.

The program is fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing and is approved by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Division of Career Education.

*Physiology and Microbiology must be repeated if completed five years or more before the date of entry into the program

***These courses can be taken as general education courses while waiting on admission to the ADN program. It is recommended to complete as many of these courses as possible to decrease the course load during the program.

^Please refer to the 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 nursing component of the degree is composed of five nursing courses taken in four semesters. Each course includes classroom and clinical experiences. Clinical experiences will be provided at hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and other selected facilities. The student should anticipate additional time for preparation in nursing courses as well as in the non-nursing courses.

Students must maintain a letter grade of "C" or above in all required courses to continue in the ADN program.

Prior to clinical experience, a physical examination, urine drug screen, documentation of immunizations and a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course are required.

Students are expected to provide their own transportation to clinical sites. Clinical sites are located throughout Central and Northeast Missouri.

For additional admission information, please see the ADN Application or Michelle Frey, Dean of Health Sciences, ext. 11369.
