The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer concentrations and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans. These concentrations 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.
General Education Core Requirements:
Students must complete the college general education core requirements consisting of 34 credit hours and a minimum of nine additional credits in AS disciplines for an Associate of Science degree or nine additional credits in AA disciplines for an Associate of Arts degree.
