Associate in Science Degree


Pre-med students may earn a bachelor’s degree in any major. Requirements must be met at the time pre-medical requirements are taken. If a science major is chosen, there will be considerable overlapping of requirements, thus making it easier for the student to reach both sets of requirements. Organic chemistry (CHE 2120 and CHE 2121) and physics must be completed before the end of the third year in preparation for the Medical College Admission Test that spring. These courses are suggested below, but are not necessary if a student chooses to take them at the university level. An advisor can prepare a program for a specific four-year degree.

► Total = 64 Hours

First Semester (16 Cr. Hrs.)

  • CHE 1103 Inorganic Chemistry (see prerequisites) 1, 3 (5)
  • ENGL 1101 Rhetoric and Composition I 1 (3)
  • MATH 1110 College Algebra and Trigonometry 1 (5)
  • Elective – Social Science (3)

Second Semester (17 Cr. Hrs.)

  • CHE 1104 Inorganic Chemistry / Qual. Analysis 3 (5)
  • COMM 1101 Principles of Effective Speaking (3)
  • ENGL 1102 Rhetoric and Composition II (3)
  • Elective – Fine Arts (3)
  • Elective – Humanities (3)

Third Semester (16 Cr. Hrs.)

Fourth Semester (15 Cr. Hrs.)

  • BIO 1104 College Biology II (5)

  • CHE 2121 Organic Chemistry II or 
    PHY 1102 College Physics II 3 (5)

  • HEA 1101 Health Education (2)
  • Elective – Social Science (3)

It is strongly suggested students take PHY 1101 Third Semester and PHY 1102 Fourth Semester. Both should be taken to guarantee full transfer to four-year institutions.

1 Prerequisite course(s) may be required based test scores.

2 One Fine Arts course and one Humanities course needed to meet IAI core requirements.

3 To guarantee full transfer of credit, students must complete the entire course sequence at the same school before transfer.
