Associate of Science Transfer Degree
Students who choose to fulfill degree requirements will be eligible to receive the Associate of Science (AS) Degree. This is a traditional liberal arts education with an emphasis in math or science. The Associate of Science Degree is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year institution to complete their Bachelor of Science Degree. Because of different requirements at four-year institutions, it is essential that students discuss their degree plan with their advisor.
Students interested in Biology with plans to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree would follow this recommended track.
If you are planning to transfer on to a 4-year university after graduating at OJC, view the OJC Transfer Agreement. Each student should work closely with their OJC advisor and contact their transfer institution choices for more specific transfer information. Other transfer information can be found at The Colorado Dept. of Higher Education.
The demand for skilled workers in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics is becoming increasingly important because in our 21st century global economy, most jobs will require a basic understanding of math and science.
