  10. 10. Associate Degree Requirements Quoted from Laney College Catalog: <ul><li>Candidates for the Associate Degree must complete at least 60 degree applicable units , which include courses in a major, General Education, and electives, as necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>At least 19 units must be completed in General Education … </li></ul><ul><li>A minimum number of 18 units required for the major . The specific number of units varies with the major. Students should refer to the individual curriculum patterns for this information. </li></ul><ul><li>NOTE: When the units from the General Education and major do not total 60 units, students must complete any degree-applicable course(s), referred to as electives , until the total of at least 60 units is obtained. </li></ul><ul><li>At least 12 units must be taken at Laney College. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Math Courses These can be used toward the 60 Associate Degree Applicable units Any of these meets area 4b (math) of the General Education requirement Students who start in Fall 2009 or later: Elementary Algebra cannot be used to meet the general education requirement in mathematics for the Associate Degree !!! Instead, Intermediate Algebra or Geometry will become the minimum math requirement for the Associate Degree!!!!
