Associate of General Studies (AGS)

The purpose of the Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree is to provide students an opportunity to pursue a broad general education during the two years at a community college.  It is intended as a flexible program for the student who is not pursuing a specified curriculum in the lower division transfer or career technical area.  The AGS degree may, in addition to including the number of required hours in specific divisional areas, include courses in lower division collegiate transfer and career technical education.  Because of the flexibility of the broad approach of this degree, a student may find that it may not fulfill all of the requirements of full junior standing when transferred to a four-year institution.
