Transfer Programs



Course Requirements for Core* Curricula

Associates in Arts (A.A.) and Associates in Science (A.S.) Degree Programs

*(Core curricula changes will follow THECB guidelines)

The purpose of these degree programs is to provide curricula in university parallel and the professional areas that enable students to enter as juniors at the four-year institution of their choice. While the liberal arts curricula suggested in this Bulletin will satisfy the requirements of most senior institutions, it is the students’ responsibility to identify as early as possible the institution to which they will transfer and to ascertain the specific requirements of that institution for the freshman and sophomore year. Each student’s curriculum should be planned by the student and a counselor or academic advisor with a specific four-year institution in mind.

Students who attend Angelina College for one or two years and transfer to senior colleges or universities should have no difficulty completing transfer of credits if these steps are followed:

1.) Select a major field of study and a senior college or university which offers a bachelor’s degree in the chosen field.

2.) Write or visit the admissions office of the senior college or university and obtain a current copy of its catalog. Study the freshman and sophomore courses suggested.

3.) See your faculty advisor or counselor at AC who will help you select AC courses corresponding to those offered for freshman and sophomore years at the senior college or university.

4.) Complete the courses with a grade point average of at least 2.0 (C average).

5a.) Early in your last semester at AC, apply for admission to the senior college or university and ask the AC Records Office to send the institution to which you are transferring a transcript of your credits.

5b.) For students in a Fine Arts program – plan for auditions at the university in either January or February; therefore, you should apply in the fall before the last semester.

Bachelor’s degrees awarded by most senior colleges and universities require approximately 120 semester hours, or approximately four years of study. The A.A. and A.S. degree certifies completion of the first two years of study, or a minimum of 60 semester hours. Most senior institutions will accept 66 semester hours in transfer.

The approved core curriculum is effective Fall 2017.
