If you follow the link from the Transfer Info page to the page for RIT, they say:

Transfer agreement with Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)

For transfer into:

  • Biotechnology

Start at JCC in:

  • Biotechnology (Associate in Science)

Guarantees acceptance, and junior standing with the transfer of 60 or more credit hours, of JCC students who graduate with an A.S. Biotechnology and a minimum JCC cumulative grade point average of 2.5. Also guarantees the opportunity to complete the bachelor's degree in four semesters at RIT to students who take courses specified in the agreement as part of their associate's degree. (latest update 2008).

So, as far as I can tell, they should be able to finish in two years if the courses listed in the 2008 agreement are still offered.  You can view the detailed agreement.
