Mathematics Academic Focus Plan

Academic Focus Plans are a suggested semester-by-semester course schedule with classes designed to help you transfer into your desired major at your chosen 4-year college. Focus plans do not substitute for academic advising. Contact an advisor for further information regarding placement based on Placement exam scores, scheduling, degree requirements, and graduation requirements. Your official degree that you will be pursuing at St. Louis Community College with this focus plan is the Associate in Arts - General Transfer Studies.

Missouri Civics Examination.  Students entering college for the very first time in fall 2019 and who intend to complete an associate’s degree must successfully complete a civics examination. Information on who is eligible for a waiver can be found on the STLCC website.
