Stanly Community College’s transfer degrees offer an economical and efficient way
to work towards a bachelor’s degree. The math/science intensive Associate in Science
degree is a good choice for future engineering, math, science (biology, chemistry,
physics, etc.) or technical (computer science) majors.
UNC-system universities (and most private colleges and universities) will accept the
completed AS degree as a package, which will waive the undergraduate general education
Courses identified as Universal General Education Transfer Component courses (UGETC)
will transfer to the UNC-system universities and receive course-for-course credit (provided students earn a C or better in these courses). Other courses marked
for transfer may receive general education or elective credit. Some SCC courses may
not meet general education core requirements. Therefore, students should work closely
with their advisors when registering for courses and planning their futures.
If a student has an AS degree and at least a 2.0 grade point average, he or she will
be considered for transfer by the senior institution. If the student meets minimum
admission requirements for the UNC System, he or she may transfer before completing
the AS degree; however, completing the AS degree with at least a 2.0 grade point average
will increase transferability to the student’s college of choice.
Upon completion of the University Transfer Program:
Students must complete a total of 60 semester hours (SH) to receive the Associate
in Science degree (see program outline below). Students must earn a “C” or better
in all transferable courses. Please consult an advisor, review the Associate in Arts and Associate in Science Transfer Course List or see the Course Descriptions to ensure course transferability when selecting elective courses. The last sentence
in the course description will indicate if the course is transferable.
Total semester hours: 61
