The majority of science students at CSN will transfer to a 4-year university within one or two years. Most frequently, students transfer to the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), Nevada State College (NSC) or the University of Nevada Reno (UNR) to finish a bachelor's degree. While the individual courses taken at CSN are all designed to transfer smoothly to these three institutions, some problems do still arise. Furthermore, out-of-state institutions may not matriculate all CSN courses.
There is also the issue of time. Unforeseen circumstances may force a student to relocate or suspend his/her college training for a period of time. It is not unusual for degree requirements to change, or for prerequisite courses to have a time limit. Having a degree prevents the loss of any of that credit.
If you are interested in a career in the sciences or medicine the AS degree with a biological sciences emphasis provides excellent preparation for a 4-year college or university. Most importantly, it will significantly speed up matriculation, and provide insurance to earned credits.
It is highly recommended that students maintain a consistent relationship with their counselor, as requirements change frequently.
