Associate in Science and College Credit Certificate Programs

The Associate in Science degrees are designed to prepare students for immediate entry or advancement into employment requiring specialized skills. The programs consist of at least sixty (60) credits in two basic areas. One area will be specialized courses in the career area, and the second will be General Education courses. General Education courses help students become well-rounded individuals capable of thinking and acting as mature, educated, and enlightened citizens.

Students working toward an Associate in Science degree are not necessarily preparing for transfer to a university. Earning one of the degrees prepares students for a career that requires study beyond high school, but does not require a four year degree. Students who have earned an Associate in Science degree may be qualified to enter into the Bachelor of Applied Science program in Supervision and Management at Pensacola State College.  Students deciding to attend a university may be required to do additional work at the freshman or sophomore level. The Business Administration and Hospitality and Tourism Management degrees presently have statewide articulation agreements which provide for the articulation into baccalaureate degrees. Students are encouraged to discuss career plans and seek advising assistance from a program contact or department head identified for each program.

AS Graduation Requirements:

  1. Earn at least a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better in all work completed at Pensacola State College. If any work has been attempted at any other institution of higher education, the grades earned at the other institution(s) combined with those grades earned at Pensacola State College must also result in a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0.
  2. Earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in general education courses used for the degree.
