Computer Programming and Software Transfer to Southern Oregon University
Associate of Science Degree
Major Code: 240101J
About the Program
The Associate of Science (AS) degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Southern
Oregon University (SOU). The program is designed for students transferring to its baccalaureate
degree program in computer programming and software. Students must work closely with advisors
in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate.
The curriculum allows for 31-33 core credits within the major area. By completing all appropriate
credits (including electives), students will have fulfilled all required lower-division coursework for
transfer to SOU. Students should be aware, however, that if they transfer before completing this
degree, courses will be evaluated individually toward the transfer requirements of the college of
their choice. Students should note that Associate of Science is the only designation that is recorded
on their transcripts and printed degrees.
The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant
to the discipline. For a list of learning outcomes for this discipline or program, see
Students are required to take a placement test to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading,
and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within
their skill levels as determined by placement test scores. In addition, students may also be required
to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.
Coursework from accredited universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In
order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over five years old must be reviewed
and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements.
The Associate of Science degree will be awarded to students who complete all credits in this program
with a grade of “C” or better. Students should be aware that SOU requires a grade of “B” in
CS161 and CS162 for transfer. Certain required courses are also graded on a pass/no pass basis only.
A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
