Computer Science (A.S.) - This program leads to the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and is designed for those who intend to transfer to a baccalaureate program oriented in the design of hardware and software of computer systems. The program stresses computer, mathematics, and science courses which are appropriate for transfer to a baccalaureate program.

Students who do not qualify for MAT 122 Calculus I and CSC 120 Computer Science I must seek advisement for MAT and CSC placement and should note that more than four semesters may be required to complete the degree program.
