Associate in Science Pathway to Appalachian State University Fermentation Science

Appalachian State University (ASU) and Blue Ridge Community College (BRCC) have agreed to partner in an effort to outline a specific pathway for students to obtain an Associate in Science Degree that also meets the first two years of coursework requirements for the BS degree in Fermentation Science from Appalachian State University. Students must complete the Associate in Science degree from BRCC, apply to graduate, and have the Associate in Science degree posted on their official transcript. ASU will guarantee space availability for two BRCC students until March 1st prior to Fall Semester enrollment. After that time, spaces will be released to the general student population. The Dean of Arts and Sciences at BRCC will make student recommendations to the Director of the Office of Transfer Articulation and the Program Coordinator of Fermentation Science. BRCC students must apply for admission and be admitted to Appalachian State University to articulate appropriate course credit. Students are recommended to have a complete application for admission to the university by December 1st prior to the start of the intended fall term. Upon acceptance to ASU, the recommended BRCC students can complete a major declaration for the Fermentation Sciences program. The ASU Fermentation Science course sequencing begins Fall Semester of each academic year. 

The courses listed are required in order to be considered for one of the two BRCC positions. The courses listed will satisfy Blue Ridge Community College requirements for the Associate in Science degree. Other courses may be used to complete the Associate in Science degree but may not meet the requirements for application to the Fermentation Science program at ASU. 

Students may be required to take one or more developmental courses as a result of pre-enrollment placement tests; therefore, the student may need more than the minimum number of semester hours listed for graduation. Developmental courses for this program may include Readiness Level Reading, English, and/or Math and other courses in developmental Reading, English, Math, Biology and Chemistry.
