The Associate in Science degree program is a two year university-parallel program recommended for those who plan to transfer to a four-year school with a major in science or a science-oriented field.
Preparation for professional fields such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary science and chiropractic can be initiated with this program.
The student entering this program should be well grounded in mathematics and sciences at the high school level, since this is the major emphasis of the program.
An entering student should have three years of Regents mathematics and three years of Regents science or their equivalent. A student with less preparation will require more time to complete the program.
