Individual Studies - AAS
The Instructional Program
The Individual Studies A.A.S. degree program allows students to customize a program of study from a mixture of Delhi's academic programs. The Individual Studies degree is intended to lead to entry into a career or to a specific path of further academic study. The Individual Studies curriculum may not satisfy the SUNY General Education requirements, which may limit students' transfer options and/or prevent a student from matriculating as a junior. It is not, therefore, the best program for students intending to transfer to a four-year college or university.
This program is not developed for transfer purposes. The SUNY transfer guarantee is not available for the A.A.S. degree.
To be eligible for consideration, an applicant must be a high school graduate with a minimum 75% overall average or a minimum 2500 GED test score.
SUNY Curriculum Code: 0688
SUNY General Education Requirements: Students who intend to receive A.A., A.S., or baccalaureate degrees must satisfy SUNY and campus General Education (GE) requirements to graduate. Students should be aware that GE requirements may vary by academic program. Consult with your academic advisor. For general information, see the "General Education" section of this catalog.
A.A.S. and A.O.S. degree students may not be required to fulfill General Education (GE) requirements; however, any student who may wish to transfer should complete as many GE courses as possible. Consult with your academic advisor.
Minimum Total Credit Hours = 63
Due to the individual nature of this degree, all courses must be chosen through close consultation with an Individual Studies academic advisor.
