Program Description: This degree is recommended for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges. Completion of the Associate of Science degree with a Health Sciences emphasis does not affect the professional status, certification or licensure of graduates of associate of applied science degree programs in the Health Sciences Division.

Career Opportunities: Please refer to specific information under the Health Sciences AAS degree options.

Some major programs are restricted and require special application as well as a competitive GPA. See an Academic Advisor at both SLCC and the intended transfer institution for specific articulation information.
Entry Requirements: Students must be accepted into one of the Health Sciences programs that offers an Associate of Applied (AAS) Science degree.
