SFCC Programs of Study

What's the difference between Pre-major/Transfer and Career/Technical programs?

Community college programs serve two basic student populations: students planning to transfer to a four-year institution, and students looking for short-term job training or retraining.

Pre-major programs meet the needs of transfer students, who select from over 40 pre-majors. In consultation with an faculty academic consultant, each student designs a program that meets the requirements of either the Associate of Arts degree or the Associate of Science Transfer Degree and the requirements of the transfer four-year institution.

Career/Technical programs are designed primarily for short-term job training or retraining. Most of these courses are also transferable; however, the programs may not meet all the requirements of four-year institutions offering degrees in the same major. All students planning to transfer to a four-year institution should meet with an faculty academic consultant to ensure all requirements are met.

Associate of Applied Science degrees are awarded upon completion of approximately six quarters. Certificate programs require as little as three quarters of classes.

Articulation and Direct Transfer Agreements

Some programs are designed to guarantee transfer to specific institutions, especially within Washington State. View articulation agreements on the CCS website. View a list of Direct Transfer Agreements between the state community colleges and public baccalaureate institutions.
