Additional AGS Generalist Catalog Requirements

Grades C or higher are required for all general education coursework. D grades for elective courses will count for degree completion but will not transfer. In addition, a minimum 2.0 grade point average is required for degree completion. This excludes designations and articulations in Business, Economics, Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Engineering, Mathematics, Psychology, and Spanish because special articulation agreements or designations exist for these fields of study.

When choosing general education requirements and electives, it is important to contact an advisor and the college or university where you intend to transfer. You will graduate under the catalog requirements listed for the semester in which you were first enrolled. If you interrupt attendance for two consecutive semesters (excluding summer term) or more, and then return, the catalog pertaining to the semester of re-admission is the governing document. You may also choose to use the catalog that is in effect the semester you graduate. Be sure to obtain and keep a copy of the catalog governing your degree. Courses numbered below 100 will not apply toward this degree.

Many four-year college transfer guides are available via the CCHE website at: http://highered.colorado.gov/Academics/Transfers/Guides/default.html

Other AGS Generalist Degree Requirements

  1. A minimum of 60 credits is required for the Associate of General Studies Generalist Degree.
  2. You must complete 15 transferable elective credits which may include 3 credits in Outdoor Education (OUT), Physical Education (PED), and/or Recreation (REC). Please see an advisor in your area of emphasis for specific course suggestions.
  3. If you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university, you should consult an advisor for assistance in planning your program of study. Also consult the Transfer Guide for GPA requirements of the college to which you are planning to transfer.
  4. You must complete a minimum of 15 credits through Red Rocks Community College.
  5. To graduate, file an Application for Graduation during the term in which you intend to graduate, according to the deadline published in the class schedule for that term. You must apply to graduate within one year of completing degree requirements.
  6. No more than 6 credits of independent study course work may be applied toward this degree.
  7. There is no limit on special-topic courses allowed to count toward an AGS degree. In individual cases, the limit will be determined by the program area. If you are taking special-topic courses, you should consult with your advisor regarding how these credits will apply toward a degree.
  8. To earn multiple RRCC degrees, you must complete an additional 15 credits of coursework (above and beyond the original 60 credits required for the first degree) for each successive degree. These 15 credits must all apply toward the additional degree and must be completed through RRCC.
  9. With the approval of a faculty advisor and an instructional vice president, up to 3 credits of internship may apply toward this degree.
