Associate in Science University Transfer

National Science Foundation Scholarships through Step-Up

If you are interested in a career that requires a four year degree in mathematics, sciences, or related career field, the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree is likely the best program of study for you. The best way to determine if the A.S. is the correct program of study is to research the Baccalaureate Degree Plan (BDP) at the university that you plan to attend

The Associate in Science degree is a program of study consisting of 60 semester hours of credit of college transfer courses such as English, humanities/fine arts, social sciences, mathematics, natural sciences, and elective categories. To complete the degree and transfer to a North Carolina university with junior status, students must obtain a grade of ā€œCā€ or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.

There are so many good reasons to pursue your four-year degree at CCCC. Quality of instruction is at the top of the list. There are additional benefits like convenience, low cost, and a safe environment, but quality of instruction leads the way. Class size is important for learning, and classes at CCCC are small. This means your instructors will know who you are and will be invested in your success as a college student.
