Pierce College’s Biology and Natural Sciences Department offers courses for students planning to transfer to four-year institutions or to complete associate degree requirements in other programs, and for those who have a personal interest in these areas for elective credit. Biology major transfer students should complete the AS-Track 1 or Associate in Biology (DTA/MRP) requirements. Students should also check with the transfer institution regarding specific requirements and transferable credits.
The Associate in Biology (DTA/MRP) is applicable to students planning to prepare for upper division Bachelor’s degree majors in Biology. Many students transfer to baccalaureate institutions after completing the Associate Degree Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA); this pathway does not alter that agreement or the possibility that students may continue to follow this path. This Biology MRP streamlines and facilitates preparation for upper division course work in Biology across the state.
