Important Information


Short Description


These classes lead to an Associate of Science (AS) degree in Science, which is designed to allow graduates to transfer to a four-year college or university and pursue a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. Depending on where students plan to transfer, they may be better served by following this more general approach, or by following a more program-specific transfer pattern (such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc.).

Notes


*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed transferable college credits from other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101 - Academic Development: Transitioning to College . This 1-credit course is designed to be taken in the first semester at CCBC. Students must provide an official transcript(s) from an accredited institution to document successful completion of college coursework for the ACDV 101 requirement to be waived.

**Students should meet with the discipline coordinator to plan and select appropriate electives, based on the recommended electives for their intended major and transfer institution.

Program Description


These classes lead to an Associate of Science (AS) degree in Science, which is designed to allow graduates to transfer to a four-year college or university and pursue a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. Depending on where students plan to transfer, they may be better served by following this more general approach, or by following a more program-specific transfer pattern (such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc.).

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;
