Program Description


This degree program provides opportunities for students who wish to continue their studies at a four-year institution in fields such as computer science, computer information sciences, or information systems management. Students who choose this curriculum and desire to transfer courses should speak with the program coordinator. The courses in this curriculum are designed whereby it is assumed that the student has a background that includes algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Students who do not meet these requirements can take the required prerequisite courses at CCBC after placement testing.

Program Outcomes


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

  1. Successfully transfer to a four-year or upper division Computer Science program and be as successful as the native students. The success will be measured by: their overall GPA will be the same or higher as native students; their completion rate will be the same or higher as native students.
