The General Studies Certificate provides students with a general foundation course of study that can be used to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program or used for the associate degree program. This certificate will allow students to obtain recognition for completing a minimum set of general education courses while also allowing for easier transfer to four year institutions that may recognize and accept general education certificates. Students pursuing an associate degree should refer to the curriculum guide for the program of choice for appropriate course selection.

Successful completion of this program qualifies a student to apply for a certificate in General Studies.
