Associate of Arts Degree
To receive an Associate of Arts degree all students must successfully complete all the general education requirements for a baccalaureate degree, except for the Upper-Division Writing Proficiency Assessment and the Upper-Division Writing Expectations of a major. The minimum grade average for the 60 credits required for graduation is 2.00 in all courses taken on the traditional letter grade (A-F) basis. Courses in required general education areas must have a C- minimum. Students’ course selection, in consultation with an advisor, is guided by their planned majors.
Students may enter in the autumn or spring semester. Following is a suggested first year course of study. Courses numbered below 100 and courses with a T suffix on the course number do not count toward the 60-credit requirement or general education course requirements.
