Health and Physical Education Transfer to Southern Oregon University

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

The 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 SOU’s bachelor’s degree program in health and physical education. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate.

The curriculum allows for 48 core credits within the major area. By completing all appropriate credits (including electives), students will fulfill required lower division coursework for transfer to SOU. Students should be aware, however, that if they transfer before completing this degree, their 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. Program learning outcomes for the Health and Physical Education Transfer to Southern Oregon University degree are:

  • Document a personal knowledge of demographic health changes and trends in chronic and acute diseases in the U.S. over the last 100 years.
  • Describe the correlation between healthy living and the human body.
  • Describe the connections between emotional well-being and physical wellness.
  • Identify rules and strategies for physical activities to encourage lifelong physical engagement in the wellness activity.
  • Exhibit improvement in skills or body mechanics, and model correct functional movement.

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.

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 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements.

Graduation Requirements

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate in two years as you prepare to transfer to a four-year Oregon college or university. Please meet with an advisor for any questions about alternate classes in any given term. When transferring to a four-year Oregon state college or university, one of the following options must be met as a requirement for admission:

  1. Two years of the same high school-level world language, or
  2. Two terms of college-level world language (may be first-year world language, which can be used as elective credits)

This is for students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or after. Additionally, if a student intends to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree at a four-year school, they must complete two years of a college level world language regardless of when they graduated from high school or an equivalency program. Completing the first year in terms 4-6 at RCC sets you up for the second-year sequence when you transfer.

The Associate of Science degree will be awarded to students who complete all credits in this program with a grade of “C” or better. 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.

Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
