General STEM Transfer Studies, Associate in Science

Florissant Valley, Forest Park, Meramec, and Wildwood

St. Louis Community College’s General STEM Transfer Studies, Associate in Science degree program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university and major in one of the traditional STEM areas (science, technology, engineering, math) with a heavy emphasis on undergraduate mathematics or science.

Students should become familiar with the requirements at the institution to which they plan to transfer and select their transfer courses carefully. Many bachelor's degree programs have very specific requirements for the freshman and sophomore years, and it is the transferring student’s responsibility to ensure that courses will apply to the bachelor’s degree. Students are encouraged to talk to an advisor to assist in planning a program of study or if they are considering a change in academic plans. Information about the requirements of many transfer institutions is available at stlcc.edu/transfer.
