ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE DEGREE WITH A FIELD OF STUDY IN COMPUTER SCIENCE
This plan is an official Field of Study Degree approved
Degree Code: AS.FS.COMP.SCI.18
This degree plan is designed to meet the needs of students who plan to major in Computer Science and transfer to a four-year college or university. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approves the field of study in Computer Science included in this degree. This degree plan will constitute a semester credit hour transfer block to any public Texas four-year college or university with a Computer Science Major.
Transferring students shall not be required to repeat courses transferred as part of the field of study curriculum. Completion of the field of study curriculum shall not prevent a receiving institution from requiring additional lower-division courses that may be necessary for specific degree programs. Because of the complexity of requirements, student must plan very carefully and work with an advisor/counselor.
In order to be eligible to receive this AS degree, a student must:
It is recommended that students complete the math sequence, physics sequence, and computer science sequence at the same institution to reduce the likelihood of potential gaps in the curriculum.
This degree does not include all Core Curriculum course requirements.
