Curriculum No. 350

The Associate in General Studies (AGS) Degree is an individualized degree. In partnership with an academic advisor/counselor, AGS allows students to design their own associate degree plan that may include both transfer and occupational courses. This degree has a minimum of 21 general education requirements, thus allowing considerable flexibility in designing and pursuing a course of study that meets individualized learning goals. All students considering an AGS must meet with an academic advisor to determine suitability. The AGS is not a transfer degree and may not transfer to senior institutions. The AGS is not designed for transfer to a four-year college or university. The general education requirements for the AGS may not fulfill the IAI (Illinois Articulation Initiative) General Education Core Curriculum guidelines. Some credits earned toward the AGS degree may transfer. Students should check with the receiving institution for specific transfer approval. Transfer options for the degree as a whole are limited.
