Associate in Science - Transfer Track 2 (AS-T T2)


Note: Special advising is required for this degree. Please see your advisor for course specific information. This degree is for students who are interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in engineering, computer science (information technology), or physics (Track 2) at a four-year institution.

This degree is appropriate for a student who has a strong commitment to majoring in one of the sciences and who is ready to enter MATH& 151: Calculus I  and ENGL& 101 . Completion of this degree will prepare the transfer student for upper division study in the sciences; however, it does not guarantee admission to the major. Course sequences should be completed at one institution. For example, the physics sequence or chemistry sequence should be completed at one school.

Advising is a critical element for students pursuing the associate in science - transfer degree in order to determine exactly which courses are included in each of the categories. Students are responsible for checking specific requirements of the four-year institution. Students interested in pursuing this degree should contact the Admissions Office directly for referral to associate in science - transfer degree advisors.
