Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degree (A.A. and A.S.)

The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees are designed for students planning to transfer credits to a baccalaureate degree program at a four-year institution.

The curricula in this catalog will satisfy the requirements of most four-year institutions. However, students must consult the catalog of the institutions to which they wish to transfer to determine the specific requirements of the receiving institution.

Formal articulation agreements have been established with several other institutions to facilitate the transfer of credit. For more information, consult your advisor.

Core Curriculum

The Core Curriculum includes courses in communication, mathematics, life & physical sciences, language, philosophy & culture, creative arts, social and behavioral sciences, and a core component option area. All students are required to complete the Core Curriculum before receiving an A.A. or A.S. degree (Exceptions apply for some degree plans. Contact an academic advisor for more information).

If a student successfully completes the entire 42 credit hour core curriculum at STC, that block of courses must be transferred to any other public institution of higher education in Texas and will be substituted for the receiving institution's core curriculum.

A course approved as a Texas Core Curriculum course at one institution must be applied to the student's set of core courses at any other institution in Texas.

Field of Study Curriculum

The Field of Study Curriculum includes 18 credit hours that will satisfy the lower division requirements for a baccalaureate degree in a specific academic area.

A student, who does not plan on earning a degree from South Texas College, but plans on transferring to a senior college or university, should follow the appropriate degree plan from the receiving institution.
