The Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree program emphasizes mathematics and natural and physical sciences and is designed for students who wish to enter fields related to mathematics or sciences. Areas of emphasis include secondary education, and/or professional areas of health, medicine, engineering, business, and computer science.

Requirements for specific majors at senior institutions may vary. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the students to plan a program of study to meet the requirements of the college to which they expect to transfer. It is strongly recommended students consult the college/university to which they plan to transfer to ensure that courses taken at Central Carolina Technical College meet the senior institution’s requirements for the desired four-year degree. Informed academic advisors are available to assist students.

The length of time required to complete a University Transfer Program is dependent upon the number of courses in which the student enrolls each semester. See Statewide Articulation Agreement: Technical College Courses Transferrable to Public Senior Institutions in the General Information section of this catalog and visit the following website: www.sctrac.org.
