The Associate of Science degree is designed for students who wish to take the first two years of their coursework at Clackamas Community College, then transfer to a particular four-year institution to complete a degree in the designated discipline. The Associate of Science degree has both general education and discipline specific requirements. In addition, this degree is institution specific, and the courses listed have been agreed on by the receiving institution as acceptable towards the four-year degree. Completing the Associate of Science degree does not guarantee acceptance into schools or departments that have special admissions requirements. It is important for the student to meet with an advisor to ensure that they fully understand the degree requirements.
