  2. Certificates will be awarded to students who complete the required coursework with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher.

All associate degrees require successful completion of a minimum of two (2) courses from Communicating, one of which must be ENGL 151  or ENGL 152 , or its equivalent; and a minimum of one (1) course from Creativity, Global Awareness, Mathematics and Science, and Healthy Living. Students should refer to their degree program for specific course requirements.

Service-Learning Requirement

Students graduating under the 2012-2013 Catalog or thereafter, who obtain an Associate Degree in Arts, Criminal Justice, Elementary Education, General Studies, International Studies, or Science will be required to complete a service-learning experience. Students completing an Associate of Applied Science Degree in the industrial trades are encouraged to complete a service-learning experience. Please ask your Academic Advisor which courses incorporate service-learning, or search in class schedules. The final grade in the course must qualify for academic credit in order to receive the service-learning endorsement.

General Education Core

Kellogg Community College believes in the value of general education and to that end, all students receiving an associate degree will be required to complete a General Education Core. This core will be acquired through the completion of general education core courses required for each degree (see specific program guides).

As a result of completing the General Education Core, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate writing, listening, verbal, non-verbal, and technology-related communication skills.
  2. Demonstrate critical thinking skills in gathering, analyzing, interpreting facts, and problem solving.
  3. Discern how the core information learned in their course of study is relevant to the world in which they live.
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of the creative process and the ability to appraise the significance of visual, literary, or performing arts.
  5. Distinguish between the positive and negative implications of physical, mental, and community health principles on individual and community wellness.

General Education Core Courses

Choose from the following courses to complete your general education requirements. General education core courses require a prerequisite ACCUPLACER® reading score of 60, or a “C” in TSRE 55 . It is strongly recommended that students take ENGL 151 - Freshman Composition , early in their college-level coursework to prepare for writing throughout their college career. See your program of study pages for specific course requirements. Be sure to check your transfer and program guides for more explicit directions concerning general education choices. Students seeking MTA should see the Michigan Transfer Agreement section for MTA general education requirements.
