2016-2017 SLCC General Catalog 

Computer Science & Information Systems AAS: Full-time

Plan of Study 2016-2017

The following is a plan of requirements to complete this Associate of Applied 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 Accuplacer/ACT/SAT scores. If developmental courses are required, they should be taken in the student’s first semester.

This plan uses the Computer Fundamentals, Software Develoment, and Network and System Administration Certificates of Proficienty as examples. Computer courses will vary based on the chosen CPs. Students must complete 3 CPs and the General Education courses to meet the requirements for the Associate of Applied Science degree.

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.
