Graduation

Degrees

Eastern Arizona College grants the Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Business (ABus), Associate of Science (AS), Associate of General Studies (AGS) and the Associate of Applied Science degrees (AAS).

The AA and the AS degrees have two variations each, the Associate of Arts-General Requirements (AA-GR) and Associate of Arts-Special Requirements (AA-SR), and the Associate of Science-General Requirements (AS-GR) and Associate of Science-Special Requirements (AS-SR). Specific course requirements for each of the degrees offered by Eastern Arizona College are identified in the curriculum section of this catalog. Please refer to the major you intend to pursue at EAC for specific graduation requirements.

 

Approved Electives

EAC degree programs that are designed to transfer to all of Arizona’s public universities require you to select your electives from the courses listed in the Arizona Higher Education Course Equivalency Guide (CEG).  Additional detailed information is available there.

Select courses from the list for the academic year in which you will be taking the class. For example, if you are planning to take ART 101 as an elective in the 2004-2005 academic year it must be included on the list of approved electives for 2004-2005. Only courses on the approved list for the academic year in which you take the class can be counted toward degree completion.

Choice of Catalog

Students maintaining continuous enrollment at any public Arizona community college or university may graduate according to the requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of initial enrollment or according to the requirements of any single catalog in effect during subsequent terms of continuous enrollment. Students may maintain continuous enrollment whether attending a single public community college or university in Arizona or transferring among public institutions in Arizona while pursuing their degrees.
 

1. A semester in which a student earns course credit will be counted toward continuous enrollment. Non-credit courses, audited courses, failed courses, or courses from which the student withdraws do not count toward the determination of continuous enrollment for catalog purposes.

Example A:
Admitted and earned course credit at a public college or university: Fall 2003 (Active). Continued at a community college: Spring 2004, Fall 2004 (Active). Transferred to a university: Spring 2005 (2003 or any subsequent catalog).

Example B:
Admitted and earned course credit at a public college or university: Fall 2002 (Active). Enrolled but earned all Ws or Fs: Spring 2003 (Inactive). Enrolled in audit courses only: Fall 2003 (Inactive). Nonattendance: Spring 94 (Inactive). Transferred to a university: Fall 2004 (2004 or any subsequent catalog).

 

2. Students who do not meet the minimum enrollment standard stipulated in No. 1 during three consecutive semesters (fall/spring) and the intervening summer term at any public Arizona community college or university are no longer considered continuously enrolled, and must meet requirements of the public Arizona community college or university catalog in effect at the time they are readmitted or of any single catalog in effect during subsequent terms of continuous enrollment after readmission. Students are not obligated to enroll and earn course credit during summer terms, but summer enrollment may be used to maintain continuous enrollment status.

Example A:
Admitted and earned course credit at a public college or university: Fall 2002 (Active). Nonattendance: Spring 2003, Fall 2003, Spring 2004 (Inactive). Readmitted and earned course credit at a community college: Fall 2004 (Active). Transferred to a university: Spring 2005 (2004 or any subsequent catalog).

Example B:
Admitted and earned course credit at a public college or university: Fall 2002 (Active). Nonattendance: Spring 2003 (Inactive). Readmitted, earned course credit at a community college: Summer 2003 (Active). Nonattendance: Fall 2003, Spring 2004 (Inactive). Transferred to a university: Fall 2004 (2002 or any subsequent catalog).

 

3. Students admitted or readmitted to a public Arizona community college or university during a summer term must follow the requirements of the catalog in effect the following fall semester or of any single catalog in effect during subsequent terms of continuous enrollment.

Example:
Admitted and earned course credit at a community college: Summer 2000 (Active). Continued at a community college: Fall 2000, Spring 2001 (Active). Nonattendance: Fall 2001 (Inactive). Readmitted and earned course credit at a community college: Spring 2002 (Active). Transferred to a university: Summer 2002 (2000 or any subsequent catalog).

 

4. Students transferring among Arizona public higher education institutions must meet the admission requirements, residency requirements, and all curricular and academic requirements of the degree-granting institution.
