About the Program

The Associate in Science program is for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college majoring in computer science, engineering, health sciences, mathematics, or science.

Humanities and social science majors should seek an Associate in Arts Degree.

Learning experiences for students in the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science programs are provided in classrooms, labs and other facilities on the Airport, Beltline, Harbison, and Northeast Campuses. Some courses are also held at the Fairfield and Batesburg-Leesville Campuses, the Fort Jackson Education Center and online.

Why MTC?

By enrolling in the Associate in Science program, you are enrolling in our transfer programs. It is not necessary to identify only one four-year institution you are interested in. To choose an articulation agreement, talk to your advisor in your academic career program about the college or university you want to attend.

  • MTC has small classes and great teachers to help you maximize your educational foundation.
  • You’re eligible for federal and state financial aid at MTC, just like you would be at a traditional 4-year school.
  • MTC negotiates and maintains articulation agreements with many colleges and universities through our Associate in Arts and Associate in Science programs. Our advisors will help you select the right courses for transfer to your chosen university and major.
  • MTC is an accredited college – that means your credits move with you, wherever you wind up.

Undecided?

If you know you want to transfer to a four-year school, but haven't chosen a major yet, you should enroll as an Associate in Arts student. You can decide on a major later.
