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.
