General Degrees

Associate of Science - Track 1 (AST-1)

Biological Sciences, Environmental/Resource Sciences, Chemistry, Geology and Earth Sciences

This is intended for students with an interest in transferring to a baccalaureate institution in the State of Washington in one of the targeted disciplines. Typically the Associate in Arts degree is best suited for transfer to certain baccalaureate institutions. Students should meet early in their matriculation at Olympic College with an academic faculty advisor to determine the degree suitable for them.

Associate in General Studies (AGS) (Non-Transfer)

The Associate in General Studies (AGS) grants academic recognition for the completion of 90 applicable college-level credits and provides flexibility for students to select courses which best fit their interests or emphasize a particular area of study. The non-transfer degree does not preclude the selection of transfer classes and subsequent transfer to a four-year college or university. However, students should be aware that their transcripts will be subjected to a course by course analysis by the receiving institution to determine transferability.
