[AS_FCSC Degree offered at LSC-CyFair, LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Montgomery, LSC-Tomball, and LSC-University Park]
A Field of Study Curriculum (FOSC) is a set of courses mandated by the state legislature in 1997 that fulfill lower-division (freshman and sophomore) requirements for a specific major/degree plan in addition to the core curriculum. FOSCs are guaranteed to transfer to any public college or university in Texas. Once the set of courses that makes up the FOSC are successfully completed, those courses are also guaranteed to apply to the appropriate bachelor’s-level degree plans corresponding to the field of study. Receiving colleges and universities are not allowed to require incoming transfer students to repeat courses with the same content as FOSC courses to satisfy requirements for the academic major.
