Program Description

University Transfers: While the Laredo Community College (LCC) Associate in Arts curriculum satisfies the requirements of most senior institutions, each student plans his or her course of study with the assistance of an advisor and with a specific institution in mind. If LCC does not have an articulation agreement with a four-year institution, the student and advisor may request an agreement in writing from the institution regarding acceptance of LCC coursework. A list of existing agreements is available online at http://www.laredo.edu/Counseling/degree_guides.htm.

The Associate in Science Degree incorporates the core curriculum of the Associate in Arts degree while allowing more flexibility in electives. All courses are acceptable as electives except developmental courses and occupational practicum.

Career and Technical Education Programs: LCC’s Associate of Applied Science degrees and Career/Technical certificates are designed for employment and career advancement opportunities. LCC establishes the coursework for these programs with industry participation through advisory committees.

LCC’s programs of study that lead to either an Associate of Applied Science Degree or a career/technical certificate are listed at http://www.laredo.edu/Catalog/2007-2008/2007.pdf#page=57. In some program areas, course credits can be transferred toward a bachelor’s degree program.
