Transfer advising plans are plans designed to give you the most common requirements and prerequisites in order to transfer to a university in the major of the transfer plan.  This plan does not yield an associate degree in that major. It will give you a general Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree that also contains the courses that universities want you to take in the first two years of a four year program.
