Computer Science – Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree

About the Program

The statewide Associate of Science Oregon Transfer degree in Computer Science is designed for students transferring to baccalaureate degree programs in computer science or software engineering. Those completing the ASOT – Computer Science degree are assured junior level standing for registration purposes and will have met the lower division general education requirements of any institution in the Oregon public university system. Students should be aware that if they transfer before completing this degree, courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements of the college of their choice. Students should use the ASOT-Computer Science university-specific degree requirements guide for specific transfer requirements for individual schools.

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 Associate of Science Oregon Transfer - Computer Science is:

Gather, comprehend, and communicate scientific and technical information in order to explore ideas, models and solutions and generate further questions;

Apply scientific and technical modes of inquiry, individually, and collaboratively, to critically evaluate existing or alternative explanations, solve problems, and make evidence-based decisions in an ethical manner; and

Assess the strengths and weaknesses of scientific studies and critically examine the influence of scientific and technical knowledge on human society and the environment.

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 colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies and the Computer Science Department chair’s approval. In order to ensure coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward course requirements.

Graduation Requirements

Students must complete a minimum of 90 term credits of lower division collegiate courses with a minimum grade of “C” or better.
