Computer Science (Transfer Option) (300)
Associate in Science Degree

The degree in Computer Science (Transfer Option) is intended to give the student the opportunity to explore many of the alternatives in the computer field before making a career choice, to provide a unique program in which computer courses can complement and supplement liberal arts studies, or to allow the student to complete the first two years of basic course requirements for most baccalaureate degrees in the computer field. The Computer Science - Transfer Option curriculum has set requirements at a minimum in order to give students the chance to choose courses that are required at their prospective transfer institutions.

NOTE: Courses listed in the first/third semester will be scheduled for the fall; second/fourth semester courses will be scheduled for the spring. The student is encouraged to use the curriculum planner to keep track of courses taken and those still needed. In some cases, one or more courses may be taken in a different order than indicated on the planner. However, individual course prerequisites must be observed.

Prerequisites/Corequisites – Some courses require another course be taken beforehand or at the same time. To check if a course has a prerequisite or corequisite, see the course description.
