Associate in Arts Pathway

Degree

The Associate in Arts College Transfer Pathway provides up to 32-33 credit hours leading to the Associate in Arts and is designed for high school juniors and seniors who wish to begin study toward the Associate in Arts degree and a baccalaureate degree in a non-STEM major (something other than science, technology, engineering, or mathematics).

High school juniors and seniors are eligible to enroll if they (a) have a weighted GPA of at least 3.0 on high school courses and (b) demonstrate college readiness in English, reading, and mathematics. Students are not obligated to complete a pathway or to take classes in a particular order, except in the case of prerequisites.
