                           CURRICULAR GUIDE

                      ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE DEGREE

                  (Effective Fall 2002 - Summer 2007)

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                       Kinesiology
     Chemistry                     Mathematics/Physics
     Computer Science              Medical Pre-Professional
     Geoscience                    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 Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing
section for skills assessment and advising information.

>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 (Suite
2300, Gannon (GVT) 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
Opportunities 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 111,
Arts and Sciences Building.

>I.   GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS              Minimum of 35 credits
