Associate in General Education (AGE)
The faculty of the Department of General Education at PCC assist you in creating a personalized education plan so that you may complete your general courses and know the requirements for the competitive admissions process for your respective health science program. Career-development and personalization of educational goals is a major focus of the Associate of General Education.
Advising is one of the most critical components for your success at PCC. All students (with the exception of Special Credit students) are assigned to an individual advisor or to the University Transfer/AGE Student Success Center to help them select courses, answer questions about their program of study, set academic goals, and ensure students are ready for registration. New students are assigned to the Student Success Center in RR 228 for academic advising. After successful completion of ACA 111 or 122, students will be assigned an advisor. Students who have previously earned 24 credit hours from another college do not need ACA 111 or 122 and should visit the Student Success Center to obtain an advisor. Your advisor will guide you in course selection and your eligibility to apply for your intended program.
University Transfer students may also temporarily be classified under the AGE Degree (AGE-University Transfer) if they require more than one semester of developmental course work. Once developmental courses are completed, the student will be required to submit a Change of Major form to enter the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science pre-major he/she chooses in the University Transfer Department.
