Open-Transfer Program Overview
The Certificate of General Studies is designed for students who are taking general education courses at UACCM but plan to transfer to another college before completing an associate degree or bachelor’s degree.
The Associate of General Studies degree is intended to serve as a flexible program option for students whose needs cannot be met by other programs. The AGS degree provides a foundation to prepare students for a bachelor’s degree program, direct employment, or educational enrichment. The student's advisor will help select classes specifically for a focus area. Only the listing of Associate of General Studies 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.
