Associate in Science Degree (A10400)

The Associate in Science degree is designed for students to take courses at the community college and transfer to a four-year college/university for completion of their Bachelor’s degree. The Associate in Science transfer degree is geared toward students pursuing a career in a STEM-based field: Science, Technology, Engineering, and/or Mathematics. The program of study includes thirty-four (34) semester hours of Universal General Education Transfer Component Courses (UGETC) as follows:

Communication (3) Mathematics (8)
English Composition (6) Natural Sciences (8)
History (3) Social/Behavioral Sciences (3)
Humanities/Fine Arts (3)

Students should consult with the institution(s) to which they would like to transfer for academic course selection guidance. Meeting with MCC faculty advisors and taking ACA 122: College Transfer Success will be very instrumental as well in the development of a successful transfer plan.
