What is an AS-T Track 2 MRP?
The Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) Track 2, Major Related Program is designed to prepare students entrance into a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in Bioengineering or Chemical Engineering. The MRP details the required foundation courses for students to be prepared for junior standing at baccalaureate institutions. Students will be required to take additional general education courses after transfer. Engineering is also an excellent major for graduate studies in Environmental Sciences, Law, Medicine, Business and Education.

What does your chosen four-year school require?
Before choosing classes, become familiar with the four-year program where you want to apply: visit the website, email the department, and/or speak with a Shoreline advisor. Below are examples from Washington schools with different admissions and graduation requirements. Check with the school for world language requirements. (Non-native speakers of English are often exempt from this requirement.)
University of Washington
Degrees: B.S. in Bioengineering; Chemical Engineering with an option in Nanoscience, Molecular Engineering; and Bioresource Science and Engineering.
Requirements: Note that UW Departments of Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering admit only once a year for Spring Quarter and that admission is very competitive. http://tinyurl.com/mltbehd
Walla Walla University
Degrees: B.S. in Bioengineering.
Requirements: Walla Walla University is a private university affiliated with the Seventh Day Adventists. Students will be required to take religious studies courses after transfer. http://tinyurl.com/mlww3rm
