Ospreys to Raiders Transfer Program

Associate of Science

About the Program

The Associate of Science (AS) degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Southern Oregon University (SOU). The program is designed for students transferring to SOU’s bachelor’s degree program in Health and Exercise Science. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate.

The curriculum allows for 48 core credits within the major area. By completing all appropriate credits (including electives), students will fulfill required lower division coursework for transfer to SOU. Students should be aware, however, that if they transfer before completing this degree, their courses will be evaluated individually toward the transfer requirements of the college of their choice.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for the Health and Exercise Science Transfer to Southern Oregon University degree are:

Describe the connections between leading health problems in the U.S. and exercise as medicine.

Explain best practices for addressing nutritional requirements for health.

Describe the connections between emotional well-being and physical wellness.

Demonstrate competencies in physical education activities.

Model correct functional movement in emergency and first aid scenarios.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate Department Chair before being accepted toward core requirements.

Graduation Requirements

The Associate of Science degree will be awarded to students who complete all credits in this program with a grade of “C-” or better. Certain required courses are also graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C-” or better grade.

Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher level(s) based on designated placement. Note: some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult with an advisor regularly as you complete your transfer degree.

Work closely with an academic advisor to complete courses at RCC that will meet the SOU lower division general education capacity requirements.
