Program of Study

An Associate of Science (AS) degree is a two-year program that provides a general education for those interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) or Business fields. An AS degree helps students gain useful career skills and is also designed to serve as a stepping stone into a bachelor degree program at a four-year college or university.

To make an informed selection of Ohio Transfer 36 (OT36) courses, Terra State advises the transfer-intending student to consult the receiving institution to ensure maximum transferability and application of credits.
