Introduction to the General Studies Associate in Arts (AA) - University Transfer Program

Students who do not yet know in what area they plan to major or which upper-division school to which they plan to transfer may pursue the AA degree through a program of general studies. This route to the AA degree provides an avenue for students to take any college credit electives, in addition to the general education program requirements without following any one of the preplanned areas of concentration listed in this catalog. Students need to be aware that few universities or colleges offer a general degree. Upon application to a university, the student must commit to a degree. Students are advised to work closely with a counselor or departmental advisor to insure the courses taken at Pensacola State College will meet the student’s major requirements.

Students should consult with an advisor at the college or university they plan to attend for the specific courses recommended by that institution. We strongly encourage you to contact the Pensacola State College Center for Advising and Career Services on any campus for assistance in planning your program of study.
