Associate of Science
Purpose: This curriculum is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a non-Engineering based baccalaureate degree in computer science or information technology. Students desiring a four-year Engineering Computer Science degree should consider the program under the Engineering A.S.
Admission Requirements: Applicants must meet the requirements for admission to credit-level coursework established by the college.
Developmental Requirements: Students who do not place into college-level English will be required to take developmental courses.
Students who do not demonstrate proficiency in MTE 1 , MTE 2 , MTE 3 , MTE 4 , MTE 5 , MTE 6 , MTE 7 , MTE 8 and MTE 9 will be required to take developmental courses.
It is strongly recommended that developmental education requirements be completed as soon as possible.
While a course may satisfy a requirement for a Virginia Western program, it may not fulfill a requirement at a four-year institution. Students who intend to transfer should verify specific program requirements with their four-year institution. Students with questions about the differences in the computer science/ information technology degrees at Virginia Western should contact the program head before enrolling.
