Associate of Science

The associate of science degree program provides students with a broad academic education to prepare them for the workplace and for upper-level university study. The degree requirements for the associate of science may be met through LCCC’s university transfer courses or by taking university transfer courses at other recognized colleges and/or universities. Since requirements at transfer institutions vary widely, students should consult the catalog of the transfer institution and plan their program with a college counselor.

Other programs can be pursued, as counselors can help students customize their associate of science programs to meet the transfer college/university’s requirements for math and/or science-related majors. Select from the general education/transfer module.

  • English Composition Six credit hours REQUIRED.
  • Social Sciences Six credit hours, representing two different disciplines.

  • Arts and Humanities Six credit hours, representing two diferent disciplines.

  • Science and Mathematics Three credit hours in mathematics and six credit hours in science, of which one course must be a lab science (indicated in the listing with an L); and, two year-long sequences (do not have to be in the same discipline) selected from those listed below.
    These sequences may be part of the science and mathematics requirements or may be taken as additional coursework.

 Completion of the below requirements (excluding SDEV 101) may exceed the 40 credit hours required to complete the associate of science degree requirements; otherwise, the student must select from the above list (excluding SDEV 101) additional courses to complete a total of 36-40 credit hours. LCCC students must complete a minimum of 60 credit hours to complete the associate of science degree. Therefore, a student may earn the associate of science degree by completing the above requirements, SDEV 101 for one credit hour, and additional elective hours from these or any other courses. Completion of these requirements includes the Ohio transfer module. Choices within these ranges will require careful academic planning and advice. Students should seek assistance from a counselor or advisor before proceeding.
