The Associate of Arts (AA) degree program is designed for students who plan to transfer to 4-year colleges or universities. Courses in the program parallel those required during the freshman and sophomore years of certain Bachelor of Arts programs. The AA curriculum includes 60-61 semester credit hours of general education and pre-major elective courses. Students should choose pre-major courses that are specific to their intended major and transfer college or university. Graduates of the AA program who earn at least a “C” in all courses and have an overall grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale have the opportunity to enter 4-year UNC System universities and many private institutions in NC with junior status.
