General Education Requirements for Associate of Science Degree

For associate of science programs, students are required to complete a minimum of 15 credits in the general education subject areas of: Communications; Humanities, Mathematics, Social Sciences; and Natural Sciences (F.A.C. 6A-10.024). Appropriate competencies in college-level communication and computational skills have been included in program specific courses for those programs not requiring general education coursework related to those skills. Three (3) credits of the required (6) credits of mathematics can be met with applied logic, statistics and any other computation coursework outside of the School of Mathematics (F.A.C. 6A-10.030).

Complete program descriptions and requirements are listed in this catalog. For information about a particular AS degree or certificate program, contact an academic advisor or the School’s chairperson or assistant chair.  Based on credits previously earned, students planning to continue on to a baccalaureate program may need to complete additional requirements, which may include foreign language or communication/computational skills. 

Each course used to satisfy general education courses must be completed with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
