The Associate in General Education (AGE) curriculum is designed for individuals wishing to broaden their education with emphasis on personal interest, growth and development. The two-year General Education program provides students opportunities to study English, literature, fine arts, philosophy, social science, science and mathematics at the college level.
The associate in general education curriculum program shall include a minimum of 15 semester hours of credit from general education curriculum courses including six hours in communications, three hours in humanities/fine arts, three hours in social/behavioral sciences, and three hours in natural sciences or mathematics. These courses must be at the 110-199 or 210-299 level.
All other courses in the program are college-level courses—course number 110 or higher. Many of the courses are equivalent to college transfer courses; however, the program is not principally designed for college transfer.
Counselors are available to assist students in planning their programs. Programs must be planned by student and counselor in advance for approval by the registrar as designee of the chief academic officer at least ten (10) working days prior to the start of classes.
