Associate in Arts & Associate in Science Degrees
AA and AS Degrees are designed as the equivalent of the first half of a Baccalaureate Degree. Both are general plans and may or may not satisfy the requirements of a specific transfer university. Students desiring to transfer should seek one of these degrees after consultation with the College’s Counseling Center, located on the first floor of the Moody Learning Center (MLC). In keeping with State law, students who complete the 45 credit hours of the San Antonio College core curriculum are assured that the core will transfer to any Texas public college or university. In such instances, the College’s core curriculum will be substituted for the core requirements of the receiving institution. Care should be taken in the selection of the mathematics and science courses to ensure that those courses also meet requirements of the proposed major at the transfer institution.
