The Associate of Science (AS) Degree in Physics is designed for students planning to transfer to Oregon State University. Students interested in transferring to an institution other than OSU may be best served by pursuing the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) Degree while taking specific physics and mathematics courses that will transfer to the selected university. 

Students entering the Physics program with a strong high school mathematics and science background can expect to complete the program in two years. Students who must take pre-calculus mathematics courses should expect to spend more than two years completing the program.
