Associate of Science Degree
Center for Health & Natural Science
The Associate of Science degree with a designation in chemistry is a two-year program designed for you to graduate and transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in chemistry.
In this program, you will explore calculus, physics, chemistry, atoms, chemical bonds and learn how matter interacts with forces that give matter its basics. Career paths for chemistry degree holders include research, quality control, drug research, chemical engineering and national defense.

Students can take ENG 122 and an additional GT-CO3 course instead of ENG 121 and ENG 122.
Requires prerequisite coursework: MAT 121 and MAT 122; see your academic advisor for specific information.
CHE 111 and CHE 112 cannot be taken online.
NOTE: This statewide transfer articulation agreement in chemistry does not fulfill requirements for the GT Pathways general education curriculum or the Associate of Science degree prior to transfer; however, this agreement does guarantee a student, if admitted, junior standing and completion of the baccalaureate degree within an additional 60 semester hours at the receiving institution.
Completion of the receiving institution’s lower division general education requirements is fulfilled only under the condition that one GT Pathways-approved course in arts and humanities (AH1~AH4) and one GT Pathways-approved course in social and behavioral sciences (SS1, SS2, or SS3) are successfully completed at the receiving institution within the first 30 hours or 12 calendar months.
Students transferring to a four-year college/university under this chemistry agreement are encouraged to ‘reverse’ transfer the one GT Pathways course in arts and humanities and the one GT Pathways course in social and behavioral sciences (Note #2 above) back to their community college in order to complete the GT Pathways general education program and to earn their Associate of Science degree with a chemistry designation. Lecture and laboratory portions of organic chemistry, CHE 211 and 212, must not be taken in an online delivery format.
NOTE: The faculty at Community College of Denver have chosen course elective options for this program of study based on the skills students will need to be successful in this discipline. However, for a complete list of available course options, please go to the Colorado Department of Higher Education Transfer Degree Agreement for this program.
