Degree Requirements

The courses designated as degree requirements provide students with the beginnings of a general education. This emphasis on general education continues for students throughout the curriculum. In establishing degree requirements, NMC provides a common learning experience while still providing students with choices which enhance their personal goals.

NMC awards four separate associate degrees: Associate in Science and Arts (ASA); Associate in Applied Science (AAS); Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN); and Associate in General Studies (AGS), to signify that the student has fulfilled a program of study as set by the faculty in these four respective academic areas.

The Vice President for Educational Services, in conjunction with the appropriate faculty and staff, is responsible for the development and publication of any procedures or guidelines that may be necessary to administer this policy effectively.
