Plan of Study 2019-2020

The following is a plan of requirements to complete this Associate of 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.

NOTE: This plan assumes the student is prepared to take the courses listed. If prerequisites are required, additional semesters may be required to complete this degree.

Meet with the Academic Program Advisor and consult DegreeWorks for specific degree requirements.

Advising Notes

  • Students needing to take classes to meet prerequisites of first semester courses should plan on extra time for program completion. For students not able to take MATH 1210  upon entering the program should take MATH 1080  as a prerequisite for MATH 1210  and CHEM 1210 .
  • Courses recommended to fulfill the HU and LS general education requirements are not required.
  • Some of the junior (5000) level courses in the BS Atmospheric Sciences courses at the University of Utah have prerequisites of MATH 1220  and PHYS 2210 . Students are encouraged to contact their intended transfer institution and department for up to date program information.
