About the Program
The Associate of Science (AS) degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Oregon Tech. The program is designed for students transferring to its baccalaureate degree program in Information Technology. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate. The curriculum allows for 46 core credits within the major area. By completing all appropriate credits (including electives), students will fulfill required lower division coursework for transfer to Oregon Tech.
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.

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