The Associate of Science (AS) degree is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university for a baccalaureate degree. Satisfactory completion of the degree guarantees fulfillment of lower-division general education requirements at UNR, UNLV, or NSC. Students who intend to transfer to other institutions should consult an advisor or follow the catalog of the transfer institution. Courses with a “C” or “D” designator or courses with a number less than 100 are not applicable toward either degree. Check TMCC course descriptions for transfer status to a baccalaureate degree of science within the universities in the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE).
