The Associate of Science degree with an emphasis in Biology provides a course of study which will readily transfer to most four-year colleges and universities. You will take courses in science, communication, math, humanities, social science and required biology subject areas in preparation to transfer into a bachelor's degree in Biology at many 4 year colleges.
- Apply for admission.
- Submit official high school, high school equivalency and/or college transcripts to the Admissions Office of the campus you plan to attend.
- Complete ACCUPLACER® reading and writing assessment and ALEKS® math assessment for course placement. Assessments may be waived based on previous college coursework or submission of valid ACT®, or SAT® test scores. Reading and writing scores are valid for three years, and math scores are valid for two years.
If you plan to transfer to a four-year college, you should consult with your NICC advisor and an advisor at the four-year institution you intend to transfer with any questions or to select courses that satisfy the requirements of that institution.
