The associate in science degree is designed for students whose goal is a four-year degree. The AS (associate in science) program provides students the freshmen and sophomore years of a bachelor’s degree. Course requirements include mathematics, English, social sciences, humanities, fine arts and natural sciences to parallel the courses taken during the freshmen and sophomore years at a four-year college or university.
The associate in science degree requirements parallel the courses completed during the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in fields such as biology, chemistry, dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physics, agriculture, forestry, mathematics, textiles, veterinary medicine, engineering, statistics, and computer science.
Most University Transfer courses are accepted at all South Carolina public colleges and universities and many private institutions. Course requirements for specific majors vary among four-year institutions; therefore, students should check degree requirements at their intended transfer institution before selecting courses at SCC. Students should meet with an SCC academic advisor to plan an academic schedule for their four-year degree goal.
