Program Details

The Associate of Arts (AA) program at Lone Star College System is an academic transfer degree designed for students who will ultimately be pursuing a Bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university that is not math- or science-oriented. At LSCS, the AS degree is a generalized degree that will not list a specific major but will be called Associate of Science. Examples of this type of four-year degree are: Business, Liberal Arts, History, Speech, Music, Education, Criminal Justice, etc.

While certain courses are recommended, the requirements are essentially the basic first year and second year offerings appropriate for the first two years of many baccalaureate degree programs. Students who successfully complete the degree requirements of the program will be eligible to receive the associate of arts degree. Within five years of initial enrollment in credit courses at LSCS, a student may graduate according to the catalog degree requirements in effect at the time of first enrollment or any subsequent catalog degree requirements provided the degree, the program, and requisite courses are still being offered. Course prerequisite changes need to be followed.
