Associate in Science Transfer Interest Areas

Within the Associate of Science Transfer (AST) degree, interest areas are sets of courses designated by the college to prepare students for an academic major upon transferring to a four-year college or university. Some courses in a program may need to be changed depending on the transfer institution. Interest areas are not noted on a student's transcript.
