Associate of Science (AS-Track 2) for transferring outside the State of Washington

The Engineering Transfer Program graduates students who are prepared to excel in any four-year Engineering Program in the country. The Associate of Science (Track 2) degree is intended for students with an interest in transferring to an engineering school outside the State of Washington; for transfer to an engineering school in the State of Washington students should use the appropriate Associate of Science (Track 2) Major Related Program Pre-Engineering Degree.

Students pursuing an AS (Track 2) should work closely with an Olympic College engineering faculty advisor (see list below) to determine the specific courses that are required to transfer to the Engineering curriculum of their choice.

Olympic College offers four pathways for the AST-2/MRP. One is for Engineering to be transferred outside the state of Washington, and for Physics, Computer Science, and Atmospheric Science. See that degree under General Degrees/Associate of Science. If planning to transfer to an engineering school within Washington, students should select one of the following pathways in consultation with their advisor:

  1. Mechanical, Civil, Aeronautical, Industrial, or Materials Science Pre-Engineering, transferring to an engineering school in the State of Washington.
  2. Biological or Chemical Pre-Engineering transferring to an engineering school in the State of Washington.
  3. Computer or Electrical Pre-Engineering transferring to an engineering school in the State of Washington.

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:

Core Required Courses for All Pathways (64.5 Credits)


Communication (10 Credits)


from:

Mathematics (15 Credits)


Humanities and Social Sciences (15 Credits)


  • 5 credits in Humanities,
  • 5 credits in Social Sciences,
  • Additional 5 credits in either one.

Please Note


Note 1: Science and Mathematics Requirements should be chosen to meet the requirements of the desired major at the baccalaureate institution. Some institutions require calculus-based physics, for example.

Note 2: Most scientific disciplines require more than 90 credits to achieve junior standing.

Note 3: 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.
