Computer & Information Sciences: Computer Science Transfer Option

The associate in science degree program in Computer and Information Sciences: Computer Science Transfer Option is designed to serve the needs of the student who wishes to transfer to a four year program in Computer Science. This program provides the foundation in Computer Science and Mathematics needed to succeed in a Computer Science Degree program. A minimum of 67 credit hours are required for graduation.

Starting in the fall of 2014, any student enrolled in an associate degree program who is new to NECC and has no academic history at the college, must take at least one course designated as intensive in each of NECC’s six core academic skills in order to graduate. In most cases, the program’s core required courses include these intensive courses. Plan to see an advisor for more complete information about this graduation requirement.
