Prerequisite courses and/or developmental courses may also need to be taken in addition to the course requirements shown.

Graduation Map: Associate of Arts


June 7, 2018
This semester-by-semester plan reflects the requirements to complete the Associate of Arts degree in two years. Each student’s experience will vary slightly, as this plan does not include developmental courses or transfer courses. Math and English placement will be based on the student’s Accuplacer or ACT scores.

This plan assumes the student is prepared to take the courses listed. If prerequisites or developmental courses are required they should be taken in the first semester, and additional semesters may be required to complete this degree. However, courses should be scheduled in the sequential order as shown here.
