Associate of Arts Degree


Suggested Program of Study


The Associate of Arts Degree is awarded to individuals who successfully complete a program of collegiate level work, which is transferable toward a baccalaureate degree. The state minimum general education core of 35 semester credit hours including courses in English/writing, the humanities and fine arts, history and the social sciences, mathematics, and the natural sciences are a part of this degree program. AA Degree graduates are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and the equitable treatment in the application of credits for the admissions and degree requirements. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as “No Comparable Course.” Additionally, courses with a “D” frequently do not transfer, and institutional policies may vary. ACTS may be accessed on the Internet by going to the Arkansas Department of Higher Education website and selecting “Students” and then the “Arkansas Course Transfer System. Check the ACTS website at: http://adhe.edu. This degree is also available as an online degree.
