This transfer pattern is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year degree program with a major in biology or in a pre-professional area such as pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre- veterinary medicine or pre-dentistry. The transfer pattern provides all the basic science, mathematics, and general studies transfer courses that are required during the first two years of a general four-year program. The general studies listed below should be coordinated with transfer requirements at the four-year institution and adjusted accordingly, when necessary.

This is a transfer program and is designed to enable students to transfer to a four-year college or university. Check with your advisor and the Student Success Center as soon as possible to ensure specific course transferability.

Successful completion of this program qualifies a student to apply for an Associate of Science degree in Arts and Sciences - Area of Concentration in Biology.
