What is an AS-T MRP?

The AS-T degree requires a minimum of 90 quarter credits in courses numbered 100 or above and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Each individual course must have a minimum grade of 1.0. Students granted the degree are normally awarded junior status. The AS-T Major Related Program (MRP) prepares students for entrance into certain majors at those schools. The MRP requires specific courses, and will be shown on your transcript as a different type of degree than the general AS-T.
