Associate of Science Transfer Degree Track 2: Engineering, Computer Science, Physics and Atmospheric Sciences


Olympic College offers four engineering pathways for the AST-2/MRP. In consultation with their advisor, students should select the pathway most appropriate to their planned major and transfer institution. If transferring to an engineering school within Washington State, see the three pathways listed under the Engineering category. For engineering to be transferred out of Washington, or for physics, computer science, or atmospheric science, you may wish to choose this degree.

Note that the Associate in Arts degree is best suited for transfer to certain baccalaureate institutions.

Though courses in a world language are not required for the Associate of Science degree, some baccalaureate institutions may require two or three-quarters of world language for admission or for graduation.

Entire sequences of science courses should be completed at one college.

More than 90 credits may be required to achieve junior standing, depending on major and transfer university.

Specific Colleges, Departments, and programs within universities require a GPA considerably higher than the minimum for an associate degree. Contact advisors at the baccalaureate institution for requirements.

Prior to starting the degree courses, students should prepare as follows:

Required Courses (64.5 Credits)
