A Transfer Program is an Associate in Science degree designed for students who plan to earn an associate degree at Jefferson State and then transfer to a 4-year institution to earn a bachelor’s degree. Students who utilize the STARS guide, Degree Works, and an academic advisor will take courses that are guaranteed to transfer to a 4-year institution as degree requirements. If a student completes the freshman and sophomore level courses at Jefferson State, they will be half way toward earning their bachelor’s degree when they transfer.
60 credit hours
Career and Technical Degree Programs are Associate in Applied Science degree programs for students who plan to complete an associate degree and go directly into the workforce. Many courses in these programs do not transfer to a 4-year university.
Each program has a specified required number of credit hours ranging from 60 to 76 hours.
An Associate in Arts degree is our general degree program. 60 credit hours are required to complete this degree which includes 41 hours of core courses that can be used toward many transfer degree programs. The remaining 19 hours can be selected from a specific list of elective courses. This may be a good option if you are unsure of your intended major but want to concentrate on taking core courses that are likely to transfer to a 4-year institution.
Jefferson State can consider ACT scores, Accuplacer Placement Test scores, or high school graduating GPA and course grades within 5 years for placement in math and English.
Jefferson State offers two corequisite courses which are MTH 099 and ENG 099. Students meeting specific placement test criteria can take MTH 100 along with the corequisite course MTH 099 or take ENG 101 along with the corequisite course ENG 099. MTH 099 and ENG 099 are courses that provide additional support to help a student be successful in MTH 100 and ENG 101. To request registration in these courses, go to www.jeffersonstate.edu/coreq.
ORI 101 (Orientation to College) is a one credit hour course that aids students in their transition to Jefferson State, and integrates new students into the life of the institution. It is a requirement for all transfer degree programs including our Associate in Science and Associate in Arts degrees.
