Plan of Study 2020-2021

The following is a plan of requirements to complete this Associate of Science degree in two 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:

  • It is strongly recommended that students meet with an advisor during their first semester to plan the appropriate pathway for the ultimate goal that they would like to achieve.  Students aspiring to obtain a BS or higher in biology, should obtain the AS in BIOLOGY degree rather than this AS in pre-Health Sciences degree.  Prospective pre-professional (e.g. pre-medicine, pre-veterinarian, pre-pharmacy, pre-OTD, pre-MOT etc.) students choosing to earn an AS in Pre-Health Sciences should take the highest MATH, CHEMISTRY, and PHYSICS classes offered.  Students who need to take preparatory classes to meet the requirements of first semester courses should plan on extra time to complete the program.
  • Students also earning an AAS in any allied health field should consult with financial aid to determine how earing an additional degree may affect their aid eligibility.
  • ENGL 2100    is the preferred writing course for most programs to which a student might transfer.
  • Appropriate math placement scores should be considered given that some programs may require a higher level Math than MATH 1040 .  Students should consult with a Program Advisor for best fit.
  • Students should consult the list of pre-requisite courses for the program they are interested in before selecting a Social Science (SS) and Intensive (IN) distribution courses. 
  • Students must choose whether to use the CHEM 1110  and CHEM 1120  (one year of chemistry) pathway or the CHEM 1210 , CHEM 1220 , CHEM 2310 , CHEM 2320  (two years of chemistry plus a semester of biochemistry after transfer to a 4 year institution) pathway. The two year pathway opens up more options. The suggested schedules above reflect these choices.
  • BIOL 2020 Cell Biology  and BIOL 2030 Genetics  are accepted by the University of Utah. BIOL 2060 Microbiology  is a pre-requisite for the University of Utah’s BSN program.
