Computer Science Transfer

Sample Schedule (2 year plan)

Are you interested in transferring to a four-year college or university and earning a bachelor’s degree? Students may wish to earn an Associate of Arts and apply their studies toward a bachelor’s degree in a business-related field at a four-year college or university.
