Highline graduates have many options for transferring to a four-year college or university: public and private, in-state and out-of-state. There are many bachelor’s degree programs not only in Computer Science, but also in Information Technology, Informatics, and Computer Engineering.
The degree you pursue at Highline depends on where you want to transfer to, and which degree you wish to pursue there. For most in-state four-year Computer Science programs, the AA Degree is the best option. For the UW – Seattle and some private schools, the AS Degree may be the preferred degree choice.
The first step in the transfer process is to explore your options and decide on the right choice for you. It’s always a good idea to plan on applying to more than one college or university. The links on this page may be helpful in getting you started.
