The Associate of Arts (AA) and the Associate of Science (AS) degrees are designed for transfer to baccalaureate programs at universities. These degrees have substantial general education components.
Students who have earned the AA or AS degree will be fully certified when they complete the full 60 credit-hour program designed by a partnership of the Council on Post secondary Education (CPE), the universities, and KCTCS colleges for nearly 200 different Bachelor's degree programs offered in the state. Once certified, students will be admitted to junior-level standing at one of Kentucky's public universities. All certified general education course work will be accepted as meeting up to 48 hours of institution-wide lower division general education requirements.
