University Transfer Options

Students who wish to pursue a bachelor's degree in Statistics should complete the Associate in Science (AS) degree which will transfer to all UNC System schools, most North Carolina independent colleges and universities, and most out of state institutions.

The Associate in Science (AS)

The Associate in Science (AS) is intended for students who ultimately wish to complete a baccalaureate science degree at a four-year college or university. The AS curriculum courses focus on courses such as biology, chemistry, engineering, geology, mathematics, or physics.
