Program Description: An Associate of Science degree can be earned through the study of Mathematics. It requires a minimum of 63 credit hours of coursework, including 22 hours of mathematics courses and 8 hours of physics courses. All classes are transferable to other schools in the state system of higher education and most other universities and colleges. These courses will prepare a student for completion of a mathematics or mathematics education degree at a four year institution. Students in this program also complete General Education requirements.
Transfer/Articulation Information: Requirements at four-year colleges and universities are subject to change; ongoing planning is essential. Admission into a major program at a transfer institution depends upon the receiving institution’s requirements for that major. Some major programs are restricted and require special application as well as a competitive GPA. See an Academic Advisor at both SLCC and the intended receiving institution for specific articulation information.
Estimated Time to Completion: If students follow the suggested semester schedule, time to completion is four semesters.
