The following information has been assembled to assist those students who have been accepted into the Dual Admission program with Canisius College in selecting courses that will fulfill the requirements for an NCCC Associate in Science degree and complete the first two years of a Canisius College baccalaureate degree simultaneously. It is important to note that you, the student, must accept responsibility for the planning that is necessary to take the courses required for the degree program of your choice. The Admissions Office at Canisius (phone 888-2200), counselors in the NCCC Student Development (Room A131), your NCCC faculty advisor, and this document are all important resources that are available to help you with this planning. Preparation for transfer should begin as soon as you enroll at NCCC.
