AGEC-S Arizona General Education Curriculum - S
Academic Plan Code
MCCCD Program Detail
The Maricopa County Community College District Arizona General Education Curriculum (MCCCD AGEC) is a 35-38 semester-credit general education certificate that fulfills lower-division general education requirements for students planning to transfer to any Arizona public community college or university. Generally, the MCCCD AGEC transfers as a block without loss of credit.
In most cases, all courses used to satisfy the MCCCD AGEC will apply to graduation requirements of the university major for which the AGEC was designed.
For students planning to pursue an associate degree or transfer to an Arizona public community college or university, the AGEC A is a component of the MCCCD Associate in Arts, the AGEC B is a component of the MCCCD Associate in Business, and the AGEC S is a component of the MCCCD Associate in Science.
Purpose of the AGECs
There are three types of MCCCD AGECs. They are the AGEC A, the AGEC B, and the AGEC S. Designed to articulate with different academic majors, their requirements vary accordingly. Additional information on academic majors at the Arizona public universities can be accessed via the following website: www.aztransfer.com
The AGEC S is designed to satisfy requirements in majors with more prescriptive mathematics and mathematics-based science requirements. AGEC S articulates with the Associate in Science. AGEC S requires a minimum of the first course in a calculus sequence to satisfy the Mathematics [MA] requirement, and a minimum of eight credits of either university chemistry, university physics or general biology to satisfy the Natural Sciences [SQ/SG] requirement. In addition, students must select six to eight additional credits of math and/or science appropriate to the major.
