San Antonio College Schedule/Catalog 2012-2013 [Archived Catalog]

Associate of Science, concentration in General Science


Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic / Technical

This is an Associate of Science with a concentration in General Science designed as the equivalent of the first half of a Baccalaureate Degree. This is a general plan and may or may not satisfy the requirements of a specific transfer university.

Students desiring to transfer should seek one of these degrees after consultation with the College’s Counseling Center, located on the first floor of the Moody Learning Center. In keeping with state law, students who complete the 48 credit hours of the San Antonio College core curriculum are assured that the core will transfer to any Texas public college or university.

In such instances, the College’s core curriculum will be substituted for the core requirements of the receiving institution. Care should be taken in the selection of the mathematics and science courses to ensure that those courses also meet requirements of the proposed major at the transfer institution.

The following stipulations apply:

  • Satisfy minimum entrance requirements.
  • Satisfy all Exit Competencies.
  • Complete a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit, including at least 25 percent earned at San Antonio College.
  • Maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 (“C”) for all college-level courses taken at San Antonio College and a minimum grade of “C” in each course required in the major field of study, whether taken at San Antonio College or attempted at another college.
  • Courses with a course number beginning with the number zero are developmental level courses and, as such, do not fulfill any requirements for any degrees offered at San Antonio College. Additionally, the courses may not be transferable to a four-year university.
