Academic Map

This academic map is a suggested semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AAS 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. Additionally, 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. Finally, 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.
