Students without this background may need to take prerequisite course work prior to enrolling in some of the courses required in this program. Students are strongly urged to meet with the program coordinator on a semester basis to review the program, and discuss course selections for successful completion of the program.

    Simultaneous awarding of Certificate and Degree policy: Certificates whose coursework is embedded in an Associate's degree program will not be awarded simultaneously in the same term as the degree is awarded; i.e. Biotechnology(BOD) and Biotechnology Certificate(BOC).
