*Placement score required

**Associate in Applied Science-Transfer Degree: The AAS-T is built upon the technical courses required for job preparation but also includes a college-level general education component, common in structure for all such degrees. The distinguishing characteristic of the AAS-T is a minimum of 20 credits of general education courses drawn from the same list as those taken by students completing the Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) associate degree or the Associate in Science-Transfer (AS-T) degree (that is, the courses generally accepted in transfer). AAS-T courses are designed for the dual purpose of immediate employment and as preparation for the junior year in a bachelor's degree commonly described as the bachelor of applied science (BAS). The AAS-T degree generally will not be accepted in transfer in preparation for bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degrees, although the general education component of the degree will be accepted in transfer. (State Board for Community and Technical Colleges)

***Electives may be scheduled to meet transferability to specific university programs and require appropriate assessment scores.

****Students who enrolled at WVC prior to summer 2014 may continue to use MATH 105 or 108 to satisfy the AAS-T math requirement. The deadline for graduating under this exception is fall 2015.
