Pre-Engineering Associate in Science Degree

Financial Aide Eligible

The Associate in Science Degree Pre-Engineering is designed to prepare students for junior standing at most CSU and UC institutions. To earn an Associate Degree students must complete: (1) all major course requirements with a minimum grade of “C”; (2) Cypress College Native General Education requirements; California State University General Education Breadth requirements (CSU GE Breadth) or IGETC General Education requirements; (3) the cultural diversity and reading requirements; (4) any elective courses to complete a minimum of 60 units; and, (5) have a minimum GPA of 2.0. At least 50% of all major course work must be completed at Cypress College. Courses that fulfill major requirements for an Associate Degree at Cypress College might not be the same as those required for completing the major at a transfer institution offering a Baccalaureate Degree. For information on specific university requirements, please consult with your counselor, or visit the Transfer Center.
