Computer Science (Rollins College)

Associate in Arts Degree

This pre-major is designed for the student who plans to transfer to Rollins College in Orlando, Florida as a junior to complete a four-year Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. It is based upon an articulation agreement in Computer Science with Rollins College. Students who plan to transfer are responsible for completing the admission requirements of Rollins College.

All degree-seeking students must satisfy entry testing requirements and satisfactorily complete all mandatory courses in reading, student success, mathematics, English and English for Academic Purposes in which the student is placed. Students must complete all prerequisites for the listed course requirements and Valencia’s foreign language proficiency requirement. Courses meeting the preceding requirements will be in addition to the 60 credits listed.

Start Right

Degree-seeking students enrolling at Valencia for the first time will have a limited range of courses from which to choose for their first 18 college-level credits. Within the first 18 college credit hours, you will be required to take SLS 1122 (3 credits), ENC1101 (3 credits), and a mathematics course appropriate to your selected meta-major (3 credits). The remaining courses should be chosen from the General Education Core Courses in humanities (3 credits), science (3 credits), or social science (3 credits), and/or the introductory courses within the A.A. Pre-Majors (or articulated pre-majors for those tabs). For specific courses see the Foundation Courses on the “Program Requirements” tab. For course sequencing recommendations, you can create an education plan by logging into Atlas, clicking on the LifeMap tab and clicking My Education Plan.

Financial Aid

In order to be eligible for and calculated in your enrollment status for financial aid, courses for which you are enrolled must count toward your Associate in Arts degree (36 credits of general education and 24 credits of electives). Courses listed in this plan may not be eligible for and calculated in your enrollment status financial aid if you took other course work outside of this plan (examples include prior course work from prerequisites, changing a major, and transfer course work not included in this plan).

Math Pathways

A Math Pathway is the recommended math course sequence that leads to completion of the General Education math requirement that a student would take within his/her Meta-Major. The Meta-Majors are a collection of eight academic clusters that have related courses. The intent of selecting a Meta-Major is to help you choose a major and degree based on your interests, knowledge, skills and abilities. The recommended math pathway for this transfer plan is the STEM path; see the program requirements tab for specific courses. Advisors are available on all campuses to discuss Meta-Majors and to help you review transfer institution catalogs for specific math requirements.
