Academic Transfer, A.S.


Beatrice, Lincoln, Milford and Online

The Associate of Science degree in Academic Transfer is for students who plan to complete their first two years of a bachelor’s degree in fields such as agriculture, computer science, engineering, science, mathematics, or a pre-professional program (pre-vet, pre-dentistry, pre-med, etc.) before transferring to a four-year institution.

These courses are carefully designed to meet transfer specifications, and SCC instructors are qualified professional educators in their subject areas. The result is that SCC students are consistently well prepared for success in their transfer colleges. Students who satisfactorily complete their Academic Transfer program may earn an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree from Southeast Community College. The associate degree validates an ability to successfully complete college-level studies and may expand student options for further study and for career advancement. Students are strongly encouraged to check with an advisor at the institution to which they are planning to transfer to determine which courses to take as part of the Academic Transfer degree to best meet requirements for the chosen major. Requirements vary from one college to the next and from one major/department to the next.
