The Associate of Arts (A.A.) is a 61-hour degree rooted in the University’s General Education curriculum. Program completion qualifies a student for admission into a degree completion program of the University and meets the institution's general education requirements.
A maximum of 30 hours of transfer credit may be applied toward the Associate of Arts degree. Credits are accepted at full value provided that the transferring institution is accredited by an agency recognized by the USDE (U.S. Department of Education) and CHEA (Council for Higher Education Accreditation). Courses that are comparable to William Woods University course offering are accepted in transfer. Courses accepted in transfer must have a final grade earned of “C” or above.
Transfer courses meeting general education objectives will be applied toward the degree.
Students may participate in placement testing for the English Composition and Mathematics classes. Placement tests may be arranged with the student’s academic advisor. Depending upon English placement, students will initially enroll in Introduction to College Writing (ENG099), English Composition I (ENG101) or English Composition II (ENG102). Depending upon math placement, each student’s first mathematics course will be Introduction to Mathematics (MAT098), Basic Algebra (MAT099) or Survey of College Math (MAT112).
