                           CURRICULAR GUIDE

                      ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE DEGREE

                  (Effective Fall 1999 - Summer 2004)

This is primarily a transfer degree.  It is designed for students who
intend to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a
baccalaureate degree in such disciplines or subject areas as the
following:

     Biology                       Geoscience
     Chemistry                     Mathematics/Pre-Engineering
     Computer Science              Medical Pre-Professional
     Environmental Science         Physics/Pre-Engineering

The specific requirements for this degree are presented below.  A
minimum of 60 credits is required.  This degree guide consists of
General Education Requirements and a Subject Area Concentration.  The
curriculum is structured to enable students to satisfy the LCC General
Education Core Requirements, as well as the MACRAO Transfer Agreement
between two-year and four-year institutions in Michigan.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog
or the Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic
skills assessment and advising information may be found on page 8 of
this catalog.

>NOTE:  Students should be aware that general education and subject
area requirements vary from one college or university to another. 
Prior to beginning this curriculum, students should see an academic
advisor or counselor in the Counseling and Advising Center (Room 103
of the Arts and Sciences Building, telephone number (517) 483-1904),
obtain an appropriate transfer guide (also in the Counseling and
Advising Center), and/or contact the school to which they will
transfer for specific transfer institution requirements.  (See
"Transfer Information" in this section of the Catalog for a list of
institutions for which transfer guides are available).

In addition, students may request specific course substitutions by
submitting a Course Substitution and Waiver Authorization for Degree
Screening Form to the Liberal Studies Office of Instruction, Room 110,
Arts and Sciences Building.

>I.   GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS              Minimum of 35 credits

By following the directions in this section, students will
automatically be able to satisfy the following general education
requirements:

      Lansing Community College General Education Core Requirements
       in the areas of mathematics, global perspectives and diversity,
       writing, science and technology, and speech communication. 
       (Complete information about LCC Core requirements can be found
       on page 22 of this catalog.)
      The MACRAO Transfer Agreement.  (See "Transfer Information" in
