Lower Columbia College, Longview:
Lower Columbia College is a two-year community and technical college in Longview, Washington State offering undergraduate education, transfer education, distance/online education and high school completion. At Lower Columbia College you can train for a career in a high-demand field, complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree, obtain a certificate, or just take classes for personal enrichment.
Lower Columbia College's transfer degrees allow you to complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree at LCC. The Major Related Program (MRP) degrees build on these to provide specific preparation to enter bachelor programs. While requirements for LCC graduation and acceptance at a four-year college vary by degree type, field, and college, you must fulfill specific general requirements to earn an LCC transfer degree. Transfer Degrees include:
Associate in Arts - Direct Transfer Agreement (AA-DTA)
This degree, considered a general transfer option, is recommended as a starting point for students who plan to transfer but are unsure of their major when they first enter college. The AA-DTA is widely accepted as the first two years towards a bachelor's degree by public institutions in Washington, some in Oregon, and by most private institutions in Washington. In any degree program, you should work closely with your program advisor to ensure that you are taking the proper courses.
Associate in Arts and Sciences (AA)
The program-specific AA transfer degree is for students who are sure of the baccalaureate institution they wish to attend. If you plan to earn a bachelor's degree in a professional field this may be a good option for you. You must work closely with your program advisor to design a program that will fulfill the transfer institution's general admission and program entry requirements. You should expect to have courses evaluated on a course-by-course basis upon transfer to the upper division. Your program advisor and the appropriate department chair must approve your intended program, and you must file your intent to earn this degree when you apply for graduation from LCC.
Associate in Applied Science - Transfer (AAS-T)
The AAS-T degree is built upon the technical courses required for job preparation and includes a college-level general education component. Baccalaureate institutions are not required to accept AAS-T degrees. The AAS-T does not fulfill general education requirements for a baccalaureate degree. Transferability of an AAS-T degree to a given baccalaureate institution is neither implied nor guaranteed. Each institution has its own transfer policies and each student is responsible for knowing the transfer and admission requirements of the receiving institution. Students are urged to check with their advisor at Lower Columbia College and a representative from the college they plan to attend.
Associate in Sciences - Transfer (AS-T)
The AS-T degree is designed to prepare students for upper division study in science-related fields. It will give students the broad background needed before beginning more specialized, upper-division courses.
Evening Transfer Degree
Take the classes you need to fulfill the first half of your bachelor's degree, earning an Associate in Arts (AA-DTA) degree at LCC. Then transfer to the 4-year college of your choice. A two-year and a three-year option are available. The AA-DTA degree normally requires 90 credits of completed courses. Depending on student placement, more than 90 credits may be required.
Major Related Program (MRP)
Major Related Program degrees build on the Associate in Arts Direct Transfer Agreement degree for students in the arts, humanities and social sciences, and the Associate in Sciences Transfer degree for students in engineering and science-based fields. Two-year and four-year colleges work together to create these programs so that LCC graduates can transfer smoothly into the bachelor degree program of their choice.
Professional/Technical Degrees & Certificates:
Associate in Applied Science (AAS)
This degree is not generally considered a transfer degree, although exceptions may be allowed for certain programs upon approval. AAS degrees provide occupational training that prepares you to enter the workforce with a solid education and specific skills. Representatives from local business and industry help define these degree programs so our graduates meet the standards defined by people in the workforce.
Certificate of Proficiency (COP)
This is generally considered a one-year program, although class scheduling may affect the actual length of time required. Specialized occupational courses are combined with requirements in communications, social science/human relations, and computational skills to provide a well-rounded experience that prepares you for entry-level work in a chosen field. Since many of the classes meet general education requirements, many students choose to continue and earn an associate's degree in the same or similar field.
Certificate of Completion (COC)
This short-term program of occupational training consists of a sequence of courses totaling 1-44 credits. Many students choose to continue earning credits, going on to earn a certificate of proficiency or an associate’s degree.
