Degree Plans 2019


Transfer degrees are designed for students who want to complete an associates degree at NWACC and then transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelors degree. Be sure to consult with your academic advisor for course planning and recommendations. Learn about NWACC's transfer services.

Other degrees are not designed for transfer, but to develop workforce skills in specific areas. Depending on the four-year college or university, some classes in NWACC's Associate of Applied Science, Associate of General Studies, or Associate of Fine Arts degrees may transfer. Be sure to consult with your academic advisor for course planning and recommendations.

The state of Arkansas has established a 35-hour state minimum general education core that requires courses in English and writing, the humanities and fine arts, history and social sciences, as well as mathematics and the natural sciences. To determine the transferability of courses within the state of Arkansas, visit Arkansas Course Transfer System.
