Interdisciplinary Studies Associate Degree Advising Requirement

Senate Bill 1189, 85th Legislature, requires all public community colleges to establish a multidisciplinary studies associate degree. CTC designated its Associate of Arts Interdisciplinary Studies degree as its multidisciplinary degree which requires students to:

  1. Successfully complete the college’s core curriculum; and
  2. Consult with an academic advisor prior to the start of the semester immediately following the semester or term that the student successfully completes a cumulative total of 30 or more semester credit hours; and
  3. In consultation with the academic advisor, complete a degree plan that accounts for all remaining credit hours to complete the degree program to transfer to a field of study or major at a university of the student’s choice.

Students are responsible for contacting an academic advisor once they have earned 30 or more semester credit hours.
