The Maricopa County Community College District Associate in General Studies (AGS) degree is recommended
for students whose educational goals require flexibility. The AGS allows students to choose any elective courses
numbered 100 or above to complete the degree. Therefore, this degree may be less appropriate for students who
intend to transfer to a baccalaureate-granting institution.
Students who demonstrate skills comparable to those in Critical Reading and/or Mathematics and/or
Computer Usage may substitute acceptable elective courses to satisfy the total credits required for the degree.
