General Education

The Associate of Arts in General Education degree is the most versatile degree. Graduates can transfer credits to a four-year institution in pursuit of a bachelor degree in areas such as: art, English, forestry, history, psychology, mathematics, science, secondary education, social work, sociology, theatre, etc. Only the listing of Associate of Arts in General Education will appear on the transcript and diploma.

Transferring to four-year universities is simplified through the Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS). This partnership agreement between the state’s public colleges and universities allows students to take the lower division general education requirements without fear of losing credits.
