Associate in Science Degree, Transfer Program

This program is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year institution, other than Elmira College, to pursue a degree in Education.

Graduates will have the skills and knowledge necessary to understand the aims of public education in our society, current trends in education, and the general roles and responsibilities of teachers. This knowledge will prepare them to pursue an education program at a transfer institution.

High school or equivalent preparation is required to enroll in this program. Students must maintain a 2.7 or higher GPA for successful recommendation and admission to a certification program at a four-year institution following graduation from CCC.

Given the diversity of requirements at individual transfer colleges, it is essential that students in this program meet with a faculty advisor to determine appropriate courses.
