Academic Programs


The Associate of Arts (AA) degree is a nice option for someone who wants to earn a diploma to mark two years, or 60 credits, of successful college coursework. The AA degree can be a stepping stone to a bachelor’s degree, or can be a stand-alone degree.

Degree Requirements


Remedial courses such as Math 1050, 1075, and English 1109 satisfy basic proficiency requirements but do not count as hours toward the minimum degree requirements. Repeated courses will count only once. Other requirements may apply.
