Requirements for an Associate Degree
For an associate degree, each candidate must meet the following general requirements:
Complete the curriculum as listed under the description of the associate degree program.
Complete at least 15 credit hours at ASUMH. Note: No more than 15 formal non-collegiate hours for an associate degree program may be earned through examination (including CLEP, Advanced Placement, Prior Learning Assessment, Articulated Credit, Industry Certification, evaluated military service credits, police academy credits, DANTES, and USAFI courses.)
Earn a grade of “C” or better in ENG 1003 and ENG 1013.
Submit an Intent to Graduate application by the date stated in the academic calendar to the Office of the Registrar before completing all degree requirements. (If the student is unable to graduate at the end of the semester for which application has been made, a new application must be filed during the semester in which the student expects to graduate.) An official record of concurrent, correspondence, or transfer work completed at another institution must be on file in the Office of the Registrar at least 6 weeks before the degree is to be granted.
Most associate majors require a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0. However, the ASE majors require a CGPA of 2.75. Some majors require a “C” or better in all course work, and, if a transfer student, on all work taken from the transferring institution. If a student does not have the required GPA when the Intent to Graduate application is filed, the student’s name will not appear on the graduation list published for the enrollment period.
Complete graduation requirements under the provisions of an ASUMH catalog that is not more than five years old at the time of the student’s graduation. This does not apply to programs that have been deleted from the curriculum. In the case of program deletions, those students majoring in these areas will be notified as soon as possible of this action.
Students may participate in Commencement exercises with up to four credit hours remaining on their course work. However, the degree will not be awarded until completion of all outstanding coursework.
