The Associate of Science Degree (AS) is designed for students planning to transfer credits to a baccalaureate degree program at a four-year institution. This degree allows more freedom in course selection than the Oregon Transfer Degrees but does not guarantee that students will be accepted as having completed all lower-division comprehensive and general education requirements for a baccalaureate degree. To be assured of meeting additional requirements at four-year colleges and universities, students should meet with an advisor at CGCC, and at the institution to which they plan to transfer.

Candidates for the AS degree must satisfy the General Education and Associate Degree Comprehensive Requirements and meet all the degree-specific requirements.
