Fermentation Science (A10400FS)

Associate in Science Pathway to Appalachian State University Fermentation Science

Appalachian State University (ASU) and Blue Ridge Community College (Blue Ridge) have agreed to partner in an effort to outline a specific pathway for students to obtain an Associate in Science Degree that also meets the first two years of coursework requirements for the BS degree in Fermentation Science from Appalachian State University. Students must complete the Associate in Science degree from Blue Ridge, apply to graduate, and have the Associate in Science degree posted on their official transcript. ASU will guarantee space availability for two Blue Ridge students until March 1 prior to Fall Semester enrollment. After that time, spaces will be released to the general student population. The Dean of Arts and Sciences at Blue Ridge will make student recommendations to the Director of the Office of Transfer Articulation and the Program Coordinator of Fermentation Science. Blue Ridge students must apply for admission and be admitted to Appalachian State University to articulate appropriate course credit. Students are recommended to have a complete application for admission to the university by December 1 prior to the start of the intended fall term. Upon acceptance to ASU, the recommended Blue Ridge students can complete a major declaration for the Fermentation Sciences program. The ASU Fermentation Science course sequencing begins Fall Semester of each academic year.

The courses listed are required in order to be considered for one of the two Blue Ridge positions. The courses listed will satisfy Blue Ridge Community College requirements for the Associate in Science degree. Other courses may be used to complete the Associate in Science degree but may not meet the requirements for application to the Fermentation Science program at ASU.

Students may be required to take developmental courses in Math and/or English as a result of high school GPA or pre-enrollment placement tests.  Therefore, the student may need more than the minimum number of semester hours listed for graduation. Consult a program advisor for more information. 

For more detailed information about the Fermentation Science pathway, contact the Dean for Arts and Sciences.
