Transfer Studies (A.A.)
An A.A. degree in Transfer Studies is for students who have specific educational needs not covered by other programs or who wish a general background without a heavy concentration in any one area of study. The program offers flexibility in complying with requirements for transfer to baccalaureate colleges in cases where other programs do not do so. To assure a level of concentration in the program, a minimum of 12 credit hours of courses must be in a single discipline.
A good transfer occurs when a student takes courses in support of their degree goal—the bachelor’s degree. Understanding the educational planning process is necessary to achieving that goal and there are steps that can be taken to ensure that students achieve a successful transfer. To assure a level of competency in this program, a minimum of 12 credit hours of courses must be in a single discipline. The three letters used in a course designation (e.g., BIO, ENG, GSS) indicate the discipline to which it belongs.
Physical activities courses may not be counted toward an option in physical education. Students wishing to study in the related fields of Communications, Mass Communications, or Journalism should elect a combination of four three-credit courses within the COM designator. It is strongly recommended that students consult with their transfer institution to determine which courses are most suitable for their particular program of study. AACC is a regionally accredited institution and most courses in academic subjects are transferable. Students may transfer at any time, provided they meet the four-year institution’s admission requirements.
