Plan of Study 2019-2020

The following is a plan of requirements to complete this Associate of Applied Science degree in 2 years. Each student’s experience will vary slightly, as this plan does not include transfer work, Advanced Placement (AP), or other institutions’ concurrent enrollment credits. Math and English placement will be based on the student’s appropriate placement scores. If developmental courses are required, they should be taken in the student’s first semester.

Advising Notes

  • General Education and elective courses provide training in effective oral and written communication and human relation skills. BUS 1050 is taught using group and team activities in the learning process to develop the student’s interactive skills and to build human values and ethics.

  • The classes designed to assist students in reaching the necessary skill level to enter the certificate and degree programs are MATH 0990 (Elementary Algebra) and CSIS 1020 (Computer Essentials). Any class in the preparatory skills may be waived if the student can demonstrate equivalent skills. It is the student’s responsibility to examine each course description for details of prerequisite classes. Those prerequisites must be satisfied before the designated class may be taken.

  • Students who wish to take the CSIS 1020  Computer Essentials challenge exam are advised to review the information at http://www.slcc.edu/csis/CIS1020-challenge-exam.aspx. An 80% or higher is required on each section of the test.

  • Cooperative Education is the College’s strategy for recognizing and rewarding new learning associated with study-related employment in a business, industrial or government work environment. Credit earned from FIN 2000 is applied toward graduation requirements as finance elective credit. Students are eligible for FIN 2000 Co-op after completion of a minimum of 12 credits of Finance courses.

  • The department strongly recommends that students enhance their employment opportunities through Cooperative Education as soon as skills permit, to complement the certificate or degree. Contact CO-OP Education at (801) 957-4014.
