Computer Science Transfer to Southern Oregon University

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

This Associate of Science (AS) degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Southern Oregon University (SOU). The program is designed for students transferring to its baccalaureate degree program in computer science. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate.

The curriculum allows for 23-31 core credits within the major area. By completing all appropriate credits (including electives), students will have fulfilled all required lower-division coursework for transfer to SOU. Students should be aware, however, that if they transfer before completing this degree, courses will be evaluated individually toward the transfer requirements of the college of their choice.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. The program learning outcome for the Computer Science Transfer to Southern Oregon University degree is:

Demonstrate the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined technology activities.

Ability to develop a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge.

Ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.

Ability to identify, analyze, and solve narrowly defined technology problems.

Ability to demonstrate written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over five years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements.

Graduation Requirements

The Associate of Science degree will be awarded to students who complete all credits in this program with a grade of “C” or better. Students should be aware that SOU requires a grade of “B” in CS161 and CS162 for transfer. Certain required courses are also graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
