The Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) is a 35 semester credit block of lower division general education courses for Arizona community college students transferring to public universities. The AGEC will transfer as a block to any Arizona public university without loss of credit and will fulfill all lower division general education requirements for the majors with which they articulate.
A degree awarded for the completion of a minimum of 60 credits selected to meet specific requirements. The Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Arts in Elementary Education (AAEE), Associate in Business (ABus) and Associate in Science (AS) emphasizes courses for transfer to four-year schools, the Associate of General Studies (AGS) allows more flexibility in course selection, and the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) emphasizes a particular occupational field.
Associate in Transfer Partnership (ATP)
The Associate in Transfer Partnership (ATP) is designed for students transferring to public and private colleges and universities. This degree is specifically developed for students who have a identified major and have selected the baccalaureate degree granting institution to which they intend to transfer.
