A.A.S. Natural Resources Conservation

Sample Schedule

The schedule below shows how the requirements for this degree may be met in four semesters. This schedule is an example of one of many possible schedules that may be followed by a full-time student. Many students attending FLCC who have work and/or family obligations choose a different sequence of courses and may take more than four semesters to fulfill the requirements for the degree. Similarly, students who find they need to take some preparatory coursework may plan a schedule that takes more than four semesters to complete. You should consult with your advisor when planning your schedule. If you plan to continue your studies at a four-year college or university, you should also check with your transfer institution with regard to specific courses and requirements.
