2019-20 Computer Science Transfer to SOU (PDF)

Associate of Science Degree
Courses for this Program

About the Program

This 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 science. 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.


Program Learning Outcome

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. The program learning outcome for this degree is:

Students will be prepared to transfer into Southern Oregon University’s Computer Science program.


Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process 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 level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.


Advanced Standing

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.
Graduation Requirements


Graduation 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.

Note: Students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or after must have the following requirement for admission to a four-year Oregon university: 1) Two years of the same high school-level foreign language, or 2) two terms of college-level foreign language with a grade of “C” or better (may be first-year foreign language, which can be used as elective credits on the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree). If students plan to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree at a four-year school, they must have a proficiency in a foreign language regardless of when they graduated from high school or equivalency program.
