ACADEMIC SERVICES SEMESTER HOUR

The unit of measure for credit purposes is the semester hour. One hour of class lecture each week usually is equal to one semester hour. For each classroom hour, two hours of study are expected. Two or more hours of laboratory work are counted equivalent to one classroom hour. For laboratory work that requires reports to be written outside of class, two clock hours are usually counted as one semester hour.

ACADEMIC COURSES: COURSE NUMBERING

The unit of instruction for credit purposes is the course. Most courses meet three hours each week and have a credit value of three semester hours for one semester or six hours for two semesters. Each course has an individual alpha-numeric code (such as ENGL 1301). The alpha part indicates the subject area. Each number contains three or more figures. The first digit indicates the rank of the course: 0 denotes a developmental course; 1 means that it is freshman level; and 2, sophomore level. The second figure indicates the number of semester hours credit. The third figure (or figures) indicates the order in which the course normally is taken.

ACADEMIC COURSES: TEXAS COMMON COURSE NUMBERING SYSTEM

The Texas Common Course Numbering System assists transfer students in the transition from one institution to another. Colleges participating in the Common Course Numbering System identify "common” courses taught on their campuses. All courses designed for transfer adhere to the Common Course Numbering System. Students with questions about course transferability should check with the appropriate department at the institution to which they want to transfer.

TECHNICAL COURSES: WORKFORCE EDUCATION COURSE MANUAL (WECM) COURSES

The rubrics assigned to WECM courses provide a common set of unique course designations. A common four-letter rubric (e.g., DFTG) identified a cluster of skills and knowledge to be used in determining both course equivalency and degree applicability for transfer credit on a statewide basis. This common rubric also will help students link their portfolios of skill attainment more directly to the occupational needs of business and industry. Following the rubric is a four-digit number representing the course level, the SCH value (if applicable), and the course sequence. For example, in AUMT 1309, the first digit identifies the course level. For both SCH and continuing education courses, the "1” denotes Introductory level; a "2” is Intermediate or Advanced level. The second digit defines the SCH value. A "3” indicates a 3 SCH, and a "4” indicates a 4 SCH course. A "0” instead of the "3” or "4” would denote a continuing education course that is offered for no SCH. The third and fourth digits establish the type of course and the course sequence.

MAXIMUM COURSE LOADS

The normal course load in a regular semester is 15-18 semester hours; for a sixweek summer term it is 6-8 semester hours. Overloads must be approved by the student’s instructional dean. No student will be allowed to enroll for more than 21 semester hours regardless of the number of grade points earned the preceding semester.

MINIMUM CLASS ENROLLMENT

The college reserves the right not to offer any course listed in this class schedule if fewer than 10 students register for the course.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENT FOR ACADEMIC MAJORS

All students pursuing an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree are required to complete one semester of physical education, as part of the Core Curriculum. The college will provide accommodations for students with disabilities, under the guidance of the Special Populations Coordinator.

DROPPING COURSES After consultation with their advisor and/or department head, students may drop a course and receive a grade of "Q” during the first six weeks, two weeks in the summer session of the semester. For drops after this penalty-free period, grades are recorded as "Q” or "F,” indicating that the student was passing or failing at the time of the drop. A grade of "Q” may not be assigned unless an official drop has been processed through the Admission Office. Please refer to the academic calendar in this schedule for dates that affect drops.

INSTRUCTOR INITIATED DROP When absences, other than approved absences, interfere seriously with the study or performance, the instructor may recommend to the department head or dean that the student be dropped from the course. If this action is taken after the first six weeks of the Fall or Spring semesters or after the first two weeks of the Summer sessions, a grade of "F” may be recorded for the course.

WITHDRAWALS Students wishing to withdraw during a semester or summer term should fill out a Withdrawal Petition in triplicate in the Admission Advisors Office. Students must clear all financial obligations and return all uniforms, books, laboratory equipment and other materials to the point of original issue. Three copies of the withdrawal form signed by the Finance Office, Library Services and Student Services must be presented to the Admission Office, as well as the student ID card, to be final. The withdrawal process is considered to begin when the completed form is turned into the Office of Admission & Records. The Finance Office, on application before the end of the semester or Summer session, will return such fees as are returnable according to the schedule shown under the "Fees” section of the schedule. If a withdrawal is made before the end of the sixth week, second week of a summer term or if the student is passing at the time of withdrawal after the sixth week, a grade of "W” is issued for each course affected. A grade of "F” may be issued for all courses not being passed at the time of withdrawal after the penalty-free period. Financial aid students who withdraw before completing 60 percent of the semester will be required to reimburse unused aid to the Federal government and Lamar State College-Port Arthur. Recipients at Lamar State College-Port Arthur who withdraw before the 60 percent point in the semester will have returns calculated according to the Return of Federal Title IV Guidelines. Please refer to the academic calendar printed in this schedule for the dates that affect withdrawals. A student who leaves without withdrawing officially will receive a grade of "F” in all courses and forfeit all returnable fees. Dropping courses via web registration does not constitute an official withdrawal from the college.

CHANGE OF MAJOR

Students wishing to change their major must complete a "Change of Major” form. This form is available in the Admission Advisors Office.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS

Students are classified as freshmen and sophomores. For the purpose of determining eligibility to hold certain offices and for other reasons, officially enrolled students are classified as follows: Freshman: has met all entrance requirements but has completed fewer than 30 semester hours. Sophomore: has completed a minimum of 30 semester hours with 60 grade points. Full-time student: an undergraduate taking 12 or more semester hours (six or more in a summer term) is classified as a full-time student.

GRADING SYSTEM

A - Excellent B - Good C - Satisfactory D - Passing F - Failure S - Satisfactory, credit U - Unsatisfactory, no credit I - Incomplete W - Withdrawn Q - Course was dropped NG - No grade Q6 - Course dropped 6 drop rule

DEAN’S LIST

At the end of each semester the Records Office prepares a list of all full-time (those who complete 12 or more non-developmental semester credit hours at Lamar State College-Port Arthur) freshman and sophomore students who have earned for that semester a grade point average of 3.60 or above. This is the Dean’s List and is announced by the instructional dean of each division.

PRESIDENT’S LIST

At the end of each semester the Records Office prepares a list of all full-time (those who complete 12 or more non-developmental semester credit hours at Lamar State College-Port Arthur) students who have earned that semester a grade point average of 4.0. These students are then listed on the President’s List which is published after each long semester.

SCHOLASTIC PROBATION AND SUSPENSION

The grade of "W," "Q6" or "Q" is given if the withdrawal or drop is made before the penalty date, (see Dropping Course), or if the student is passing at the time of withdrawal or drop. The grade of "I" may be given when any requirement of the course, including the final examination, is not completed. Arrangements to complete deficiencies in a course should be made with the instructor. Incomplete work must be finished during the next long semester, or the Records Office must change the "I" grade to the grade of "F." The course must then be repeated if credit is desired. An "I" grade also automatically becomes an "F" if the student reregisters for the course prior to removing the deficiencies and receiving a grade change. The instructor may record the grade of "F" for a student who is absent from the final examination and is not passing the course. Semester grades are filed with the Office of Admission and Records. A grade may not be recorded for a student not officially enrolled in a course during the semester covered. A grade may not be corrected or changed without the written authorization of the instructor issuing the grade. The written instruction for a grade change should be accompanied by a statement explaining the reason for the change. A student desiring to register for a course to receive a grade of "NG" must have the written approval on official form of the major department head, instructor and instructor’s department head and Record Office verification. Student semester hours attempted will be reduced by appropriate number of hours. Students are responsible for completing and filing the appropriate petition form with the Records Office. A student must petition for "No Grade" after the 12th class day for Fall and Spring semester and after the 4th class day of the Summer sessions and before the deadline for dropping or withdrawing from a course without penalty. Effective Fall 2001, Lamar State College-Port Arthur students will have one opportunity to replace a grade earned in an academic or technical course. If a student repeats a course, the official grade will be the second grade earned - regardless of whether it is higher, lower or the same-although the first grade remains on the student’s official transcript.

Students are expected to make acceptable scholastic progress toward their degree objectives. A "C" is the minimum satisfactory grade and a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) constitutes satisfactory performance. All students with a GPA reflecting "academic suspension” at the end of the Fall or Spring semesters shall be suspended. No first time college students shall be suspended at the end of their first semester of attendance. Academic Probation: Freshman students (1-29 semester credit hours (SCH) work attempted) who have less than a 2.0 but greater than a 1.15 GPA; sophomore students (30-59 SCH work attempted) who have less than a 2.0 but greater than a 1.58 GPA; and other students who have greater than 60 SCH work attempted and have less than a 2.0 but greater than a 1.72 GPA; at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters shall be considered to be on "academic probation.” Academic Suspension: Freshman students (1-29 SCH work attempted) who have less than a 1.15 GPA; sophomore students (30-59 SCH work attempted) who have less than a 1.58 GPA; and other students who have greater than 60 SCH work attempted and have less than a 1.72 GPA; at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters shall be considered to be on "academic suspension.” Students suspended from Fall and/or Spring semesters by this action may, however, attend the summer session on probation. Students who have not improved, at least, to the level of "academic probation” at the close of the Summer session may register for the following Fall semester but will be charged with a suspension. Students returning from an academic suspension must continue to improve their GPA every semester of enrollment until they achieve the minimum 2.0 GPA. Should students fail to improve their GPA in any one semester, they will be suspended, unless approved for probationary re-enrollment by the dean of their division. Students who are enrolling for either a Fall or Spring semester, who have passed fewer than sixty semester hours, and who finished the immediate two long semesters on scholastic probation, are required to enroll in and pass EDUC 1300 or PSYC 1300 Learning Framework. The course helps students develop skills and techniques necessary for success in college, including memory development, note taking, preparing for exams, study skills and time management. Students also learn about the importance of creativity, health, relationships and the effective use of resources in achieving collegiate success. EDUC 1300 or PSYC 1300 is also required for students who fail a developmental course. A passing grade must be earned in EDUC 1300 or PSYC 1300 in order to satisfy the institutional requirement. EDUC 1300 or PSYC 1300 may count for elective credit in selected degree or certificate programs. Students who petition for readmission after being placed on scholastic suspension either at Lamar State College-Port Arthur or at another institution must enroll in and complete EDUC 1300 or PSYC 1300 as a condition for readmission and retention in the college. A department may prescribe academic requirements for its majors in addition to the basic grade point standard, with the approval of the vice president for academic affairs. Students suspended under this provision may register in another college provided they meet the prescribed standards and are accepted through the change of major procedure.

ABSENCE FOR "RELIGIOUS HOLY DAYS"

In accordance with the Texas Education Code 51.911, a student who will be absent for observance of a "religious holy day" must notify the instructor for each class in writing no later than the 15th day after the first day of the semester to be excused. The instructor for each class will verify the student’s request in writing. A student who is absent from classes for the observance of a "religious holy day" will be allowed to take an exam or complete an assignment for that day within a reasonable time after the absence. A "religious holy day" means a holy day observed by a religion whose places of worship are exempt from property taxation under section 11.20 of the tax code. For more information, contact the Office of the Vice President for Student Services.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS OR NAME

Students are responsible for all communications addressed to them at the address on file in the Records Office. Any student who moves during a semester must immediately register his change of address and/or telephone number in the Records Office. Failure to do so may result in a hold being placed on the student’s records. Change of address forms are available in the Records Office. Change of name due to marriage or correction of name because of spelling errors may be made by completing a name change card at the Records Office. All name changes must be accompanied by a copy of the legal document making the name change official.

ACADEMIC RECORDS AND TRANSCRIPTS

Academic records are in the permanent custody of the Admission and Records Office. Documents received by the Admission Office become the property of Lamar State College-Port Arthur and cannot be copied or returned to students. Transcripts of academic records may be secured by an individual personally or will be released on the student's written authorization. Students who owe debts to the college will have their official transcripts withheld until the debt is paid.

TUITION REBATES FOR STUDENTS EARNING A BACHELOR'S DEGREE Students who earn a bachelor's degree from a Texas university may qualify for a tuition rebate of up to $1,000 if they have earned no more than three semester hours of credit beyond what is required for their degree. This incentive program was created by state legislators and is detailed in the Texas Education Code (54.0065). Though the rebate is not granted to students for earning a certificate of completion or associate degree, Lamar State College-Port Arthur students may qualify if they later transfer their credits to a university and complete a baccalaureate degree. To be eligible, all four of the following criteria must be met: 1. The student must have enrolled for the first time in a higher education institution in the fall 1997 semester or later. 2. The student must be requesting a rebate for work related to a first baccalaureate degree received from a Texas public university. 3. The student must have been a resident of Texas, must have attempted all coursework at a Texas public institution of higher education and have been entitled to pay resident tuition at all times while pursuing the degree. 4. Students must have attempted no more than three hours in excess of the minimum number of semester credit hours required to complete the degree under the catalog under which they were graduated. Hours attempted include transfer credits, credit by examination, courses that are dropped after the official census date, forcredit developmental courses, optional internship and cooperative education courses and repeated courses. Courses dropped for reasons that are determined by the institution to be totally beyond the control of the student shall not be counted. Students who transfer to a Texas university to complete a bachelor's degree are responsible for providing the university with official transcripts from all institutions attended previously. Rebate request forms and details about the program are available through the university granting the baccalaureate degree.

ACADEMIC BILL OF RIGHTS

ID CARD

In order that you as a student may better prepare for individual courses; in order that you may plan for more efficient use of your time; in order that you may know what is expected of you; and in order that you may know your status in any course at any reasonable time; the Student Government Association and the Academic Council of Deans recommend and urge that the faculty of Lamar-Port Arthur observe the following Fair Teaching Practices: 1. At the beginning of all courses, the instructors should state clearly their attendance policy, their grading policy and their office hours. These should be stated in sufficient detail so as to leave little possibility of misunderstanding. 2. The dates of major tests and the due dates of major papers should be announced sufficiently early to permit proper student planning and preparation. One week’s notice for major tests and three weeks’ notice for major papers should be considered a minimum. 3. Tests and papers should be graded and returned within a reasonable period of time. Normally, three weeks should be considered a maximum. Major tests should not be given until all previous major tests have been graded and returned. 4. When feasible, students should be provided with a syllabus or outline of the course. 5. Proper student preparation for final examinations can be encouraged by faculty members organizing their courses in such a way that major tests are not given and major papers are not due during the week prior to the beginning of final examinations.

ADVISING SERVICES

The Lamar State College-Port Arthur Admission Advising Office is on the third floor of the Student Center. Advisors assist students in their admission to the college and in questions of residency and registration for the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) test. Advisors also counsel students concerning dropping courses and withdrawing from school. In addition, they help with the selection of courses, completion of schedules and registering for class. Scholarship information is coordinated by the advisors. Students interested in scholarships may contact the Advising office for application forms for local and institutional scholarships. The college reserves the right to require tests of any student if it appears that scores would be helpful in making the admission decision or would be beneficial for advising purposes. Lamar-Port Arthur also assigns faculty advisor/mentors to give each student additional support. Students are encouraged to visit and become familiar with their assigned faculty advisor/mentor. Students who do not know who their faculty advisor/mentor is should contact the Admission Advisors Office.

SPECIAL POPULATIONS/DISABILITIES COORDINATOR

The Special Populations/Disabilities Coordinator serves individuals with disabilities; individuals from economically disadvantaged families, including foster children; individuals preparing for non-traditional training and employment; single parents, including single pregnant women; displaced homemakers; and individuals with other barriers to educational achievement, including those with limited English proficiency and those who are academically disadvantaged.

This card is the student’s pass to all college-sponsored events, including athletics, artist series, plays, recitals, musicals, readings and lectures. It also serves as a library card and a pass to work in the computer labs. College officials have the authority to ask the student to present his/her ID card at any time. It is the student’s responsibility to present it upon request.

CAMPUS SECURITY Community Service officers help protect you and your property as well as the college’s. Furthermore they provide escort service to your car upon request and maintain parking lot surveillance. The campus also relies on the Port Arthur Police Department when in need. All emergencies on campus should be reported to the Security Office. For assistance, dial O. During evening hours contact the campus operator by dialing O. Security is coordinated through the Vice President for Student Services Office.

PARKING REGULATIONS Each student who pays the necessary fee is issued a hanging tag that permits parking on the campus. This tag is numbered and is to be displayed as instructed in official parking and traffic regulations, which are issued when automobiles are registered. It is an important document and should be read thoroughly. Strict observance of traffic and parking regulations is necessary for the safe, orderly flow of vehicles in the campus area. Handicapped parking spaces are available in the east end of the Madison Monroe building. For information, contact the Vice President for Student Services.

EMERGENCY MESSAGES In the event of an emergency between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., the Office of Student Services will attempt to locate a student on campus and/or to relay an emergency message to him/her.

EXTENDED CLASS ABSENCE Students may also request this office to notify faculty members prior to or during an extended absence due to personal or family illness, accident, hospitalization, etc. This notification does not constitute an excused absence from class; however, it does advise the faculty member as to the reason a student is absent and the expected date of his/her return.

TUITION AND FEES

Tuition is based on the number of hours for which the student registers and is determined by the student’s classification as a Texas resident, a non-resident U.S. citizen or non-resident who is a citizen of another country. In accordance with H.B. 1836 enacted in 1995 by the Texas Legislature, the Texas non-resident tuition fee will not apply to any resident of Louisiana who registers at Lamar State College-Port Arthur. A Louisiana resident enrolling at the college shall pay tuition and fees equivalent to the amount charged a Texas resident. In no case will the Louisiana resident pay less than the Texas resident tuition and fees. Proof of residency must be provided and approved to be eligible for this exemption.

PAYMENT OF FEES

Lamar State College-Port Arthur reserves the right to change fees in keeping with acts of the Texas Legislature and The Texas State University System Board of Regents.

Refunds will be processed in accordance with the published schedule. Withdrawing from the college must be done with an advisor in order for the student to receive any refund. Dropping courses via the internet does not constitute an official withdrawal from the college.

REFUND OF FEES — DROPS

Lamar State College-Port Arthur Sing our alma mater's praise, hail, her colors blue. Give to her our homage, our love to her be true. High above the water's way, behold the Seahawk rise, on faith and hope our dreams take wing toward the lofty skies.

When the shore line shadows fall upon the Stilwell green, we pray for her who shelder'd us, for what her name will mean. Honor, pride and Seahawk blue attend beyond a day, lead thy children on to light, thy spirit with us stay.

Lamar State College-Port Arthur our loyalty we sing.

HYBRID COURSES Spring 2012 A "hybrid” course is one that combines traditional face-to-face classroom instruction with a significant online component. At LSC-PA, students enrolled in hybrid courses will meet in the classroom with their instructor two days per week (Mondays and Wednesdays).

Hybrid courses offer students the advantages of the active, autonomous learning process of an Internet-based course, as well as the regularly scheduled interaction with the course instructor.

“USE THE CROSSWALK” When the pedestrian is in the crosswalk vehicles must yield the right of way to the pedestrian. However, a pedestrian may not proceed into a crosswalk, from a safe location, when vehicular traffic is in such proximity that it is impossible for the vehicle to stop. The Texas Transportation Code (Sec. 552.008) requires vehicle operators to exercise due care to avoid hitting pedestrians on the roadway, allows the use of an audible device (horn) to warn pedestrians who are on the roadway, and requires drivers to exercise precautin upon observing a child or "obviously confused or incapacitated person" on a roadway. You are subject to a fine (ticket) if these regulations are not upheld. (409) 983-4921 or 1-800-477-5872

2nd Drop Non-Paymnet Deadline:

January 18, 2012 (2nd class day)

ON-LINE COURSES Courses taught over the Internet provide an avenue for students to attain college credit outside the traditional classroom. A web-based course provides an interactive connection between students and teacher. Students have access to the course through the Internet from a computer at home or at work -- any time, day or night. Using the internet, students receive instructional materials and interact with the teacher, who guides them through the course, monitors their progress and advises them as necessary. Online courses present effective and flexible educational opportunities for busy students and professionals outside the traditional classroom, and give students more flexibility in scheduling. Instead of going to class at regularly-scheduled times, students have access to course materials and the instructor from remote locations, including their own homes, at times convenient to their individual schedules. Interested students must be aware, however, that the flexibility offered by the course shifts a great deal of responsibility to the student. This lack of a rigid class schedule may seem very appealing because it allows students to set their own schedule. It requires much self-discipline, however, and many students discover that they need a more traditionally-structured learning environment. Should I Enroll in an Online Course? Before you sign up for a distance education course, ask yourself if the following descriptions apply to you: • Self-Starter – No one has to tell me when to do my schoolwork • Motivated – I feel a strong desire to accomplish whatever I put my mind to • Organized – I’m a planner and can schedule things so most get done • Goal Oriented – I like to set goals for myself and follow through • Computer Friendly – I feel very comfortable using a computer and have very few problems • Assertive – If I need help, I’m not afraid to seek out answers • Good Writer – I can communicate well in writing • Good Reader – I can read with understanding and assimilate large amounts of information • Prepared – I have checked the catalog to make sure I have had the prerequisites for this course If most of these describe you, then you can probably succeed in and benefit from taking an online course. To meet the objectives of these courses, you must have the following:

Important Notice to All LSCPA Students: As a result of discussion with students, student leadership, faculty and staff, a decision was made in spring 2004 that effective with the fall 2004 grading cycle, Lamar State College-Port Arthur changed to a single transcript and GPA (Grade Point Average) for ALL college work attempted. The College had a two track GPA record system with a separate Academic Class GPA and transcript and separate Technical Class GPA and transcript. This action combined all classes from both systems into a less cumbersome and confusing single GPA and transcript, typical of all other colleges and universities in the state and nation. This change had NO impact on any grades a student had taken. Also this change had NO impact on decisions for graduation or graduation honors. This change streamlined

and more clearly presented all course work attempted as viewed by students, advisors, financial aid advisors and more importantly prospective employers and other schools you may choose to attend. Note: Any student who has taken only Academic or Technical courses will not see any change. Only students who have taken both Academic and Technical courses benefitted from the improvements of two transcripts being combined into one simple transcript and one GPA, again typical of all other state and national institutions throughout the country. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact an Advisor or Admission & Records Staff member on the 3rd floor of the Student Center for more specific information.

NEW Student Policy for electronics in the classroom Electronic devices (such as cell phones, MP3 players, and laptops) shall not be used during tests unless specifically allowed by the instructor, or the Special Populations Coordinator has determined that such a device is an acceptable accommodation for a physical or mental disability. Under any other circumstances, the use of an electronic device during a test shall be considered academic dishonesty, and will result in appropriate sanctions as outlined in the Instructor’s syllabus, in the Faculty Handbook (Section IX-1), and in the Student Handbook (“Academic Dishonesty”). Use of electronic devices during normal class hours distracts other students, disrupts the class, and wastes valuable time. Instructors have an obligation to reduce such disruptions. Each instructor shall develop a policy regarding the use of electronic devices in class and include that policy in his/her syllabus.

LAMAR STATE COLLEGE-PORT ARTHUR CORE CURRICULUM In accordance with the Texas Education Code, Chapter 61, each state-supported college and university in Texas is required to design and implement a Core Curriculum, with the courses comprising the curriculum totaling no more than 48 semester hours. Each Core Curriculum must be consistent with the Texas Common Course Numbering System, and must be consistent with the framework identified in Charts I and II in this section. Chart I specifies the minimum number of semester credit hours required in each of the five major component areas that, by law, a Core Curriculum must include. Chart II specifies options available to students for the remaining 12 semester hours required for completion of the Core Curriculum. A student successfully completing the Core Curriculum at Lamar-Port Arthur may transfer that block of courses to any other state-supported institution. When transferred, the receiving institution must substitute the block of courses for its Core Curriculum. A transferring student shall receive academic credit for each of the courses transferred and may not be required to take additional Core Curriculum courses at the receiving institution. A student who transfers from Lamar State College-Port Arthur to another institution without completing the LSC-PA Core Curriculum shall receive academic credit

within the core curriculum of the receiving institution for each applicable course transferred. Following receipt of credit for these courses, the student probably will be required to satisfy the remaining course requirements in the core curriculum of the receiving institution. Therefore, to eliminate the possibility of being required to take additional core curriculum courses at the receiving institution, Lamar-Port Arthur strongly encourages its students to complete its entire Core Curriculum before transferring. A student concurrently enrolled at more than one institution of higher education shall follow the Core Curriculum requirements in effect for the institution at which the student is classified as a degree-seeking student. Completion of the Core Curriculum is a requirement for earning an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree at Lamar-Port Arthur. The regulations pertaining to it apply to students preparing for those degrees and/or a bachelor’s degree. Students pursuing an Associate of Applied Science degree are exempt from the Core Curriculum requirements explained in this section.
