Forestry (OSU Transfer) Emphasis - Associate of Science (AS)

Description

The Associate of Science Forestry (OSU Transfer) Emphasis is intended to fulfill many lower-division requirements of the Bachelor of Science in Forest Management from Oregon State University. Other universities’ requirements for a forest management degree may be similar, and course requirements for other forestry majors will differ. Students planning to transfer to any university forestry program should meet with a forest resources technology advisor to discuss transfer requirements.

Advising Notes

It is recommended that a student also take FOR 251 Recreational Resource Management and BI 212 Principles of Biology. Though it is not included as an Associate of Science requirement, students will need to meet the Difference, Power and Discrimination requirement at OSU and could use COCC courses to meet it.

Performance Standards

  • Academic Requirements:
    • Students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA to earn a COCC certificate or degree.
    • All courses in the program must be completed with a grade of C or higher.
