Purpose: The Science program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a baccalaureate degree in a pre-professional or scientific program. It is appropriate for students who plan to major in one of the biological or physical sciences, pharmacy, agriculture, forestry, science education, pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-veterinary, nursing, or one of the many allied health professions.
Admission Requirements: All students will be required to demonstrate college readiness through transcript review or informed self-placement. Based on this review students may request or be required to enroll in prerequisite or corequisite math and/or English courses.
