The Associate in General Studies degree is designed for students choosing to pursue widely varying areas of interests.
The degree is not designed for career students, nor is it designed to meet the four-year transfer college requirements of the Michigan Transfer Agreement.
Flexibility is provided so that the required 62 credit hours can be met as individually appropriate.
Because transferability of credits varies with colleges and universities, programs and departmental majors, students are urged to discuss their program with an OCC counselor and transfer institution.
