Associate of Science (AS)
All courses in an AS degree are transfer-level courses and will be evaluated course-by-course at the receiving institution toward satisfying major, general education or elective degree requirements. Note, this degree does not guarantee that lower division general education will be fully satisfied upon transfer. This degree articulates well with certain majors such as engineering, biological and physical sciences, and the fine and performing arts that require highly specific lower-division major requirements. There are fewer general education course requirements in the AS degree than in the AAOT degree, allowing students to complete a greater number of major requirements.
