Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates

The Associate in General Studies (AGS) grants academic recognition for the completion of 90 applicable college-level credits and provides flexibility for students to select courses which best fit their interests or emphasize a particular area of study. The non-transfer degree does not preclude the selection of transfer classes and subsequent transfer to a four-year college or university. However, students should be aware that their transcripts will be subjected to a course by course analysis by the receiving institution to determine transferability. This degree is not a direct transfer associate degree (DTA). Students with a previous associate degree are not eligible for the AGS. Students may not receive the AGS in the same quarter as another associate degree.

Non-course requirements:

  • 15 credits at the 200 level or higher
  • Cumulative college level OC grade point average of 2.0 or higher.
  • A maximum of 30 credits of Pass/No Credit graded courses will be accepted instead of the standard numerical grade.
  • A minimum of 20 quarter-credits must have been earned at OC.
