Exercise Science Transfer Pathway AS Degree
The Exercise Science Transfer Pathway AS degree offers students a powerful option: the opportunity to complete an associate degree whose course credits will directly transfer to designated Exercise Science bachelor’s degree programs at Minnesota State universities. The entire curriculum has been carefully designed to guarantee junior-year status to students who have been admitted to one of the seven Minnesota State universities. There, students can complete their bachelor’s degree by earning 60 additional credits.
Minnesota State universities include: Bemidji State University; Metropolitan State University; Minnesota State University, Mankato; Minnesota State University Moorhead; Southwest Minnesota State University; St. Cloud State University; and Winona State University.
Transfer Pathway degrees may transfer to colleges and universities outside of the Minnesota State system, such as private and out-of-state schools. It is highly recommended that students interested in this possibility contact their intended transfer school, advisor/counselor, and program instructors for academic planning assistance.
Century College offers a $1,000 scholarship, prorated between fall and spring semesters, to students pursuing a career in Physical Education, Health Education or Sports Management.
