Associate in Applied Science-Transfer
The associate in applied science - transfer degree (AAS-T) is designed to build upon the technical courses required for job preparation but also includes a college-level general education component, common in structure for all such degrees. In general, technical degree programs are not designed for transfer to other colleges and universities. However, several four-year colleges and universities have specific bachelor’s degree programs that accept AAS-T degrees. WVC currently offers AAS-T degrees in agriculture (horticulture and tree fruit production, and sustainable and organic agriculture), business computer technology, early childhood education, and criminal justice.
Students seeking to transfer into degree programs other than those specifically designed for the AAS-T are urged to consider the Direct Transfer Agreement (Associate of Arts and Science) or Associate of Science-Transfer (AS-T) in preparation for transfer. Majors outside the specifically designed degrees listed above likely will accept very few of the credits in the AAS-T degree (English composition, college-level math, and other general education courses will transfer.)
