Students who complete the Associate Degree of Nursing program at Shasta College are eligible to apply for an Associate in Science Degree. Students must meet all of the requirements for graduation as indicated in the catalog to which they have "catalog rights". Catalog rights are determined based on when a student initially took courses at Shasta College. As long as a student maintains continuous attendance at Shasta College, catalog rights are protected. If there has been an interruption in classes for more than two semesters, the student will be held responsible for the graduation requirements in effect at the time they re-enter Shasta College.
It is the student’s responsibility to file an application for the degree. The application should be filed in the Admissions & Records Office one month before the end of the semester in which the student plans to complete all of the requirements.
In addition to the prerequisites and identified course work, the student must have completed the general education courses for an Associate Degree (Shasta College Catalog)
