In order to be awarded the associate in science degree, students must have met the following requirements:
- Earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (“C”) at Florida State College in courses eligible toward the associate in science degree programs (A.S. Florida State College GPA).
- Earned an all–college cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (“C”) on all courses attempted, including transferred credits. (All college cumulative.)
- Completed at least 25 percent of credit semester hours required for the degree at Florida State College.
- Completed the minimum required semester hours, as specified by the degree, of which a minimum of 15 semester hours must be General Education requirements.
- Earned a grade of at least a “C” in each course used to satisfy the General Education Requirements .
- Students must have fulfilled all financial obligations to the College before they may graduate.
Note: Students are cautioned to pay particular attention to the following statements.
- Graduation dates will be the date at the end of the college term in which the students complete the academic requirements for the degree or certificate for which students are applicants. (The removal of an incomplete grade does not affect students’ graduation dates, since the grade change is effective as of the end of the term in which the incomplete grade was assigned rather than the term in which the incomplete work was made up.)
- If students expect to complete the coursework under the terms of the catalog in effect during the term of their first registration, they must graduate within five years or they will need to be reassigned to an active catalog. Accordingly, students who enter under this catalog (2012/2013) must graduate by the end of the Summer Term 2017, or they will automatically be reassigned to the 2016/2017 catalog requirements. Changes to requirements as mandated by law or by rule of the District Board of Trustees may supersede this provision.
- The General Education Requirements may be taken on any Florida State College campus or center.
- Many courses in this catalog have prerequisite and/or corequisite courses which are listed in the course descriptions. Students are advised to be guided by these requirements.
- Students who place into college preparatory courses are required to complete designated college preparatory courses with a grade of “C” or better regardless of program of study.
- Degree–seeking students whose native language is not English, who fall below a designated cutoff score on the English as a second language (ESL) entry placement test, will be required to take ESL courses with EAP prefix prior to registering for other college credit classes. The level of these courses will be determined by the entry placement scores. Individual exceptions will be determined by the ESL program manager.
- Degree–seeking students identified as non–native speakers must take an English as a second language (ESL) placement test prior to taking the College’s standard course placement test. Students who place into ESL, as determined by the test, must complete ESL courses before registering for other college credit classes. Non–degree seeking college credit students who plan to take English or reading courses must also meet these requirements. Exceptions to these requirements can be made by the ESL program manager or designee.
This associate in science degree program is intended primarily for students who desire to complete an associate in science degree and become employed. Students who decide to pursue university transfer study must meet certain course and test requirements. For details refer to the University Transfer Guide.
