An Associate of Science Degree is a 2 year program.
A student wishing to transfer to another institution to complete a Bachelors degree can transfer all courses from their Associate of Science to any University in B.C. providing the overall average is 60% or better. This is a benefit, because Universities will not give transfer credit for certain individual courses with a mark of less than 60%.
Some universities give preferred entrance to students with an Associate of Science.
An Associate of Science gives the student 60 credits towards their Bachelors degree (usually 120 credits in total).
Students planning to transfer to specialized programs may be better advised to take specific courses rather than trying to fulfill the requirements of the Associate Degree.
