Additional Associate Degrees and Certificates

A student may earn multiple associate degrees and certificates from College of San Mateo. Each additional degree and Certificate of Achievement will be posted to the student’s academic record and the student will receive diplomas for each degree and Certificate of Achievement earned. For additional degrees and certificates any course used to meet the prescribed graduation requirements may count toward more than one degree and certificate. Courses used for one major may be used to meet requirements for additional majors. Courses used to meet the competency requirements and general education requirements for the first degree may be used to fulfill these requirements for additional degrees, provided the student has maintained “continuous enrollment” (see Graduation Requirements and Student Catalog Rights). If a break in enrollment occurs, a student must comply with the competency, general education, and major requirements in effect at the time the student resumes attendance or those in effect in subsequent years of the student’s enrollment.

Students with external coursework, coursework completed at colleges and universities outside the San Mateo County Community District (SMCCCD), should use Transcript Evaluation Service (TES) to determine how it will be applied for degrees and certificatesFor more information, visit the District Transcript Evaluation Service website or call (650) 574-6234.
