Associate in Arts and Associate in Science

An associate in arts or associate in science degree is the strongest pathway for a student to start on the transfer journey. These two degrees are designed for transfer to baccalaureate programs at universities, covering substantial general education components and accommodating the structure of Baccalaureate Transfer Frameworks described below.

Information about specific frameworks and copies of frameworks may be obtained from academic advisors or the admissions office.
