Degrees and Certificates

Associate of Art Transfer Degree

The Associate of Arts degree consists of 60 credit hours of courses designed to transfer. A transfer course may count as a requirement or as an elective credit in a particular bachelor's program. How the courses transfer depends on the college and the major. Because a course transfers to a university doesn't necessarily mean it will transfer into the major degree program. NWACC academic advisors assist students in choosing NWACC courses that will transfer to specific bachelor's programs in the region. The courses are general education and survey courses traditionally taken during the first two years of college.

Associate of Applied Science Degree

The Associate of Applied Science Degree is designed for employment purposes, and it should not be assumed that the degree or the courses in the degree can be transferred to another institution. While a few institutions accept some courses in A.A.S. programs, the general rule is that courses in A.A.S. degrees are not accepted in transfer toward bachelor's degrees. Students to whom transfer is important should get assurances in writing, in advance from the institution to which they wish to transfer.
