Associate in Science Degree A10400

Curriculum Description:
The College Transfer Program is designed for the students who plan to transfer to a four year institution to continue their formal education for a Baccalaureate Degree. The program of study includes a general education core of 45 semester hours credit distributed as follows:
        English Composition (6)                 Communication (3)
        Humanities/Fine Arts (3)                History (3)
        Social/Behavioral Sciences (3)      Mathematics (8)
        Natural Sciences (8)


Students who complete this core may be eligible to transfer to any of the state public four year institutions and satisfy the general education requirements there. Students who complete the additional required hours (20-21) for the degree may be eligible to transfer and enter with junior class standing.
Students who are planning to transfer to a private college or out-of-state institution should consult with that institution for academic course selection guidance.


The students' faculty advisor should be consulted for a listing of the courses that will satisfy the degree requirements for transfer purposes.
