Associate in Science Transfer Degree
The Associate in Science Transfer Degree is intended for students majoring in science who wish to transfer as juniors to four-year institutions in Washington. Two different options are offered: 1) biological science, chemistry, geology, environmental/resource sciences, and earth science or 2) computer science, physics, atmospheric science, and engineering. This degree allows students to concentrate on fulfilling pre-major coursework in their intended field of study.
Students may earn an Associate in Science (AS) Degree, which is designed for those who complete a 90 credit program that is parallel with the first two years of a baccalaureate institution to which they intend to transfer. A cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher is required for successful completion of this degree.
Coursework is concentrated in specific mathematics and sciences requirements. Additional coursework in general education, humanities and social sciences will be required at the transfer institution. Some remaining general education requirements may be satisfied with upper division courses. Students need to meet with department advisors at the baccalaureate institution to determine an appropriate educational plan.
