Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates List

Overview


The Associate in Biology Direct Transfer Agreement/Major Related Program degree is intended to prepare students to transfer to Washington’s public four-year colleges and universities and many private colleges with junior standing and the majority of the prerequisites for a Biology major completed.

Selecting and planning courses with a science advisor is strongly recommended to ensure a seamless transition to a Biology major program at a specific university or four-year college. Students are encouraged to check with the transfer institution early in their decision process to confirm degree requirements of baccalaureate college of choice.

Notes on Application to a University or College:

  • Admission application deadlines vary; students must meet the deadline for the university or universities to which they plan to apply for transfer admission.
  • Certain schools may have additional - university-specific requirements that are not prerequisites to admission to the Biology major, but will need to be completed prior to graduation. Contact with advisors from individual schools for institutional requirements is highly recommended since this DTA may not meet every institution-specific graduation requirement.
  • Certain schools may have additional - university-specific requirements for admission to the institution that are not prerequisites specifically identified in the DTA requirements.
