Students should consult with an advisor at the college or university they plan to attend for the specific courses recommended by that institution. We strongly encourage you to contact the Pensacola State College Physical Sciences Department for assistance in planning your program of study.

The Associate in Arts degree may be awarded upon satisfactory completion of 60 credit hours. Students are advised to complete the above planned track in order to transfer into a similar program at senior institutions.
