**A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, possibly increasing the minimum number of credits required for the degree to 62 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:

  1. recognize characteristics of lifelong learning: independent thinking, self-discipline, and ethical behavior;
  2. demonstrate the technological skills needed to advance academic pursuits at a senior institution;
  3. apply a set of analytical and problem-solving skills to real-world situations;
  4. demonstrate interpersonal skills that reflect an understanding of diversity and the need for teamwork; and
  5. communicate information to a variety of audiences using appropriate written, spoken, and/or visual methods.

Program Description:

The A.S. degree program recognizes mastery in mathematics and/or science and is intended for transfer to Bachelor of Science programs at four-year institutions.
