Para-educators (teacher aides/paraprofessionals) assist classroom teachers to educate children with special needs in PK-12 schools. Please work with your academic advisor and the catalog of the transfer institution to determine specific courses that should be taken.
The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans. These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.
PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer. They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC. Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
