Chemistry -Science Transfer A.S. Degree

The Chemistry Transfer program parallels the first two years of a baccalaureate degree program at four-year colleges and universities. Students will learn the basics of general chemistry and organic chemistry that will prepare them to meet the challenges of preprofessional courses at the upper division colleges and universities. Potential careers include:

  • Chemists
  • Chemistry Teachers
  • Clinical Research Coordinators
  • Food Scientists
  • Chemical Technicians

Frequently Asked Questions

What will students learn if they study Chemistry Pre-Professional?

They will learn the basics of general chemistry and organic chemistry that will prepare them to meet the challenges of preprofessional courses at the upper division colleges and universities.

Are there any requirements students must satisfy before taking courses in the major?

A passing score on the College’s mathematics placement test for both Algebra I and Algebra II or MAT-013 and MAT-014 is required for all Chemistry majors. In addition, a high school laboratory chemistry course with a minimum grade of “C” or CHM-010 and a high school laboratory biology course or BIO-010 with a minimum grade of “C” are also required.

Can Chemistry students 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.

Transfer Information

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

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 lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
