Degree Requirements for the Associate in Arts and Associate in Science Degree
The Associate Degree (A.A. or A.S.) is awarded to a student completing a planned university parallel program designed to meet the requirements of the first two years of a Bachelor of Arts Degree or a Bachelor of Science Degree. The requirements vary with individual four-year institutions; therefore, students should consult the catalog of the four-year college to which they plan to transfer, discuss plans with their advisor, and/or consult the Advising Center. ORI107 (Student Success) is a college requirement, not a requirement of a specific program. All associate degrees contain the following core requirements:
