Associate Degree Requirements (ASC.ASC)

   The Associate in Science Degree offers a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and the environmental sciences.
   Students elect the Associate in Science Degree for various reasons: as a basis for further study toward a baccalaureate degree or preprofessional course work in medicine, dentistry and pharmacy.
   These Associate in Science Degrees meet the MACRAO transfer agreement requirements.
   Because transferability of credits varies with colleges and universities, programs and departmental majors, students are urged to discuss their program plans with an OCC counselor and transfer institution.

   Graduating from this program does not automatically qualify the student for the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) endorsement. Students in this program seeking MTA endorsement should work closely with an OCC counselor to identify classes from the MTA List which apply to the endorsement and to degree requirements.
