Associate in Arts Degree

The Associate in Arts degree (A.A.) is designed for students who plan to transfer to a Florida public four-year institution as a junior to complete a bachelor’s degree program. The A.A. degree provides the courses of study equivalent to those offered in the freshman and sophomore years at Florida’s state colleges and universities. The A.A. degree requirements consist of 36 credit hours of general education and 24 credit hours of electives. Students should select elective courses that are required for admission to the student’s intended major at the desired college or university.

Associate in Science Degree

The Associate in Science (A.S.) degree programs prepare students to enter a specific career immediately after graduation. In most cases, they are not considered equal to the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program. However, some of the credits earned in an A.S. degree program may be transferrable to a four-year college or university.

College-credit Certificates

Certificate programs prepare students for a specific career. Most credits earned in a certificate program are not transferrable to a four-year college or university. However, the credits earned in a certificate program may be able to be applied to a specific Associate in Science degree program in the same field.

Graduation Requirements and Year of Entry

Students must complete the requirements shown in the College catalog for the year in which they enter the College. If graduation requirements change during a student’s attendance, the student may elect to satisfy either the new requirements or the ones in force at the time of enrollment, provided the student has maintained continuous enrollment. Continuous enrollment may be claimed if the student satisfactorily completes at least one course during the Fall or Spring term. If a break in enrollment of more than 12 months occurs, the student must complete requirements for graduation under the catalog in force at the time of re-entry.

Students enrolled in healthcare programs will be required to fulfill graduation requirements specified in the catalog for the year in which they enrolled in their first healthcare program course. If a student withdraws before completing the program and is later re-admitted, the student must fulfill the requirements in force at the time the student returns to the program.
