Certain profession-related programs, such as engineering and nursing, may be exempt from the requirement that they apply all 35 credit hours toward general education or major requirements, but the remaining work may be accepted as elective credits. There are also special requirements for education majors.
Computer Science Requirement for Associate of Science Degree: any 3 credit Computer Science course (COSC 111 or above). Transfer colleges vary in whether they accept computer science courses as electives.
Associate of Science requirements include completion at least 27 common core credits with a 2.0 GPA or higher. Program requirements serve as a guide for selecting courses and the sequence for taking these courses. It is recognized that students often need developmental or preliminary preparation courses and more semesters to complete the A.S. degree.
Courses not included in the general core curriculum above may not necessarily be accepted by the transfer institution. Students are advised that grades below C typically do not transfer. Students intending to transfer to a bachelor degree granting college or university are strongly encouraged to check with their advisor and carefully coordinate their coursework at San Juan College with the requirements of the transfer institution.
