Associate in Science Degree Program

Associate in Science

What it's about

The Associate in Science (A.S.) program is included in the agreement between North Carolina’s community colleges and its four-year colleges and universities. It is designed to provide students with an opportunity to take the first two years of a four-year program in many majors.

Jobs available

College transfer programs, such as the Associate in Science, are designed to assist your transition towards a Bachelor's degree, not necessarily into a job. Students completing the AS, but do not transfer, may find work in a variety of settings. 

Courses you'll take

The course work includes composition and literature, humanities, mathematics, natural and social sciences, computer applications and physical education. ACA090 Student Success is recommended.

What you'll gain

If your plan is to transfer to a four-year college or university, you’ll get many of your prerequisites out of the way, while allowing you to develop self-discipline and study skills in a nurturing environment.


Upon successful completion of the Associate in Arts, Associate in Science or Associate in General Education, the student should be able to:

1. Communicate effectively.
2. Think critically.
3. Demonstrate information literacy.
4. Demonstrate interdependence.
