46 Southside Virginia Community College TRANSFER DEGREES (Christanna and John H. Daniel Campuses) Award: Associate of Arts and Sciences Length: Sixty to sixty-one credit hour program Purpose: The associate of arts and sciences degree program is designed for students who plan to transfer to fouryear colleges or universities to complete baccalaureate degree programs. Whether students are undecided about their majors or plan to enter some specialized program, the flexibility of the electives within SVCC’s Transfer Degree allows them to select courses to meet the transfer requirements of the four-year institutions. For example, students interested in the following areas of study can spend their first two years of study at SVCC qualifying for an associate degree and generally transfer to a fouryear institution with junior class standing: agribusiness, business, education, English, humanities, mathematics, medical related fields, natural science and social sciences. Special Admission Requirements: In addition to meeting the college’s general admissions requirements, the student must have also satisfactorily completed the following high school units or the equivalent as a minimum: four units of English, two units of college preparatory mathematics, one unit of college preparatory laboratory science and one unit of social studies. Program Description: The associate of arts and sciences curriculum requires courses in English, humanities, laboratory sciences, mathematics, social science and health and physical education usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate curriculum. Each student is urged to become acquainted with the requirements of the major department in the college or university to which transfer is contemplated and also to consult with a counselor at that institution. Students enrolled in the associate of arts and sciences curriculum plan their programs to meet their particular needs with the guidance and approval of an advisor at SVCC.
