Horticulture

- Students contemplating transfer to Colorado State University should take MAT 121.

- Elective courses may be applicable to several certificates but credits count only once towards the AAS degree. If you are completing this and another certificate as part of an AAS program, you must complete at least 38 certificate and elective credits. These credits must include HLT 101, HLT 240 and MAT 107, MAT 108, or MAT 121 (or higher). (See a HLT Program Director for guidance).
