Associate of Science Degree
Sioux City Campus

Program Description

The Associate of Science (A.S.) degree provides students with a foundation in the general studies as well as the sciences. Students will gain knowledge and skills which can be generalized to the world outside the classroom. The degree and the courses leading to the A.S. degree are designed for students interested in pursuing further education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). As a result, a minimum of 20 credits are necessary from the math and sciences. While the A.S. degree program offers opportunities for personal and career enhancement, such degree is designed for students who wish to transfer to four-year institutions which offer full Bachelor of Science degrees.

Students who intend to transfer credits to another college or university are responsible for identifying the specific program requirements at the transfer institution. In order to meet specific program requirements, the student should coordinate his/her sequence of courses with a WITCC academic advisor and transfer staff from the destination institution. Current catalogs for most U.S. colleges and universities are available in the WITCC Learning Achievement Center and in the Career Development Center.
