Degree students complete their freshman and sophomore years of study at IRSC—which includes 36 credit hours of general education and 24 credit hours of electives—and upon degree completion can choose to continue their education locally by enrolling at one of the more than 20 Bachelor's Degree programs offered at Indian River State College or transferring as a junior to a Florida university.
