Associate of General Studies Degree

A total of 90 credits are required to complete the Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree. The courses listed below are only meant to serve as a guide of recommended choices within categories required in the AGS framework. See the AGS graduation guide for full degree requirements. It is recommended that students also consult with the transfer college of choice regarding specific prerequisites since requirements for a biology major vary at each university.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate in two years as you prepare to transfer to a four-year Oregon college or university. Please meet with an advisor for any questions about alternate classes in any given term. When transferring to a four-year Oregon state college or university, one of the following options must be met as a requirement for admission:

  1. Two years of the same high school-level world language, or
  2. Two terms of college-level world language (may be first-year world language, which can be used as elective credits)

This is for students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or after. Additionally, if a student intends to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree at a four-year school, they must complete two years of a college level world language regardless of when they graduated from high school or an equivalency program. Completing the first year in terms 4-6 at RCC sets you up for the second-year sequence when you transfer.

Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation.
