2017-2018 Catalog

Undeclared


Students who want to earn a degree or certificate but are undecided about an area of study may initially choose one of three undeclared area of study options. The undeclared areas of study enable students to explore various academic and career options and earn credit toward a variety of degrees or certificates while deciding on a program. The staff of the Counseling, Advising and Retention Services Center is available to assist undeclared students in major and career exploration, declaring a program and in the development of an educational plan.

 

Undeclared Transfer Prep Option


(code AA.GEN.UND-TRAN)

Purpose: This area of study option is for students who want to earn an Associate of Arts or associate of sciences degree and transfer to a four-year college or university, but are still deciding on a subject area. The undeclared area of study option allows you to begin study in required general education courses while working with academic and career advisors to select an appropriate degree program to meet your transfer needs.

Requirements: Refer to the general education A.A./A.S. degree requirements  section of this catalog to ensure that general education, diversity and computing and information technology degree requirements are included in your course selections.

Declaring a Program: Students are required to declare a program by the completion of 24 credits. To declare a program, submit an Program of Study Change Form to the Records office or use MyAACC. If AACC does not offer a transfer program for your intended major, please select Transfer Studies (AA.TRANSFER.STDS) as your program at AACC.

Undeclared Career Prep Option


(code AA.GEN.UND-CAR)

Purpose: This area of study option is for students who want to earn an Associate of Applied Science degree so they can prepare for a career or possibly transfer, but are still deciding on a subject area. The undeclared area of study option allows you to begin study in required general education courses while working with academic and career advisors to select an appropriate degree program to meet your career goals.

Requirements: Refer to the general education A.A.S. degree requirements  section of this catalog to ensure that general education, diversity and computing and information technology degree requirements are included in your course selections.

Undeclared Certificate Option


(code AA.GEN.UND-CRT)

Purpose: This area of study option is for students who want to earn a certificate to update job skills, but are still deciding on a subject area. Most certificate areas of study are designed as units within Associate of Applied Science degree program and can be acquired in the process of seeking the A.A.S. degree.

Requirements: Because certificate programs do not require general education courses and require limited electives, it is required that students meet with an academic advisor prior to their first registration.

Declaring a Program of Study: Undeclared certificate-seeking students are required to declare a program by the completion of seven credits.
