Associate of Science (A.S.) Degree

The associate of science degree provides a solid background in mathematics, natural sciences, or technology and leads to career paths in those fields, as well as transfer options to bachelor of science programs at four-year institutions.

The A.S. may be earned directly through Stark State College or through a partnership with Kent State University-Stark Campus that awards the degree jointly.

A minimum of 60 credits are required for the associate of science degree.  All students must earn the minimum credit subtotal in English composition, social and behavioral sciences, arts and humanities, and sciences and mathematics.
