About the Degree

Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree
The Computer Science Transfer program leads to the Associate of Science degree and prepares students to transfer to public and private four-year colleges and universities in computer science. Students study topics in computer science such as problem-solving, object-oriented programming using Java, and computer architecture. Calculus, natural science, social science, and humanities are also studied. In the past, many of our students have successfully transferred to the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Rutgers University and other public and private colleges and universities.

What will students learn if they study Science Transfer?
They concentrate on the theoretical and applied sciences, and mathematics. These studies prepare students to meet the challenges of advanced study in professional careers.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?
Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra II competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test. Students must also have a grade of “C” or better in high school algebra II, geometry, laboratory chemistry and one additional year of laboratory science.

Can Computer Science majors transfer to four-year colleges and universities?
The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all of the lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements with private institutions may provide similar transfer provisions. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

How long will it take to complete this degree?
Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
