The Chemistry transfer curriculum is designed for students planning a career in chemistry or a related field that would benefit from a strong background in the physical sciences and mathematics. Successful completion of the curriculum will allow the student to transfer to a four-year chemistry program or to four-year programs in the physical sciences or engineering.

This degree plan is designed to provide students with a more accurate representation of the course sequences taken during the first two years of a four-year degree program in either chemistry or mathematics.

Students choosing this plan should consult with the Mathematics and Science Department in selecting their courses since future plans of study at a four-year college may have specific requirements. In addition, a student should contact the college or university of their choice to confirm a list of recommended courses. 

Upon completion of this program, the student is awarded an Associate in Science degree, which allows transfer to most four-year colleges and universities as a junior.

This plan meets the Liberal Arts Program Purposes listed in the NDSCS Catalog.

Admission Requirements

The applicants must be high school graduates or equivalent. Helpful course to prepare for this program are biology, chemistry, computer science, English, mathematics and physics.

Courses that develop reading and communication skills and two years of a foreign language, if available, also are recommended. Applicants may be required to complete a basic skills evaluation during the admissions process.


Upon successful completion of the required courses, students will be awarded an Associate in Science degree in Liberal Arts.
