University and The University of Arizona
Eastern Arizona College offers three Associate Degrees that are appropriate
for transfer to Arizona's public universities. These Associate Degrees
are 64 credits and have four basic "blocks" upon which they are built.
The blocks are: the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC), Common Courses,
Special Requirements, and Electives. If you complete the degrees, you will be
guaranteed to enter the university with Junior status.
The three degrees are:
ASSOCIATE OF ARTS (AA): This degree is designed for students who plan to transfer
to a university and earn a bachelor's degree in areas such as Liberal Arts,
Social Sciences, Fine Arts, Public Programs, and Communication.
ASSOCIATE OF BUSINESS (ABus): This degree is designed for students who plan
to transfer to a university and earn a bachelor's degree in Business and Business-related
areas such as Computer Information Systems or Economics.
ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (AS): This degree is designed for students who plan to
transfer to a university and earn a bachelor's degree in areas such as the Physical
and Biological Sciences or Mathematics.
Completion of the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) guarantees your
admission to the universities if you are a resident student. Non-residents must
have a grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. Completion of the AGEC also
means that you will have met the lower-division general studies requirements
at any of the universities for the majors that articulate with that AGEC.
Brigham Young University -
EAC has a transfer partnership with BYU. If
you earn an Associate of Arts, Associate of Business, Associate of General
Studies, or Associate of Science degree from EAC, you increase the probability
of your admission to BYU.
If you are admitted to BYU with an Associate
of Arts, Associate of General Studies, Associate of Business, or Associate of
Science Degree from EAC, you will have completed all BYU general education
requirements with the exception of American Heritage, Advanced Writing, and the
Advanced Mathematics or Foreign Language requirements. EAC offers mathematics
and foreign language courses that you may take to satisfy BYU's advanced
Mathematics or Foreign Language requirement. You should consult the BYU/EAC
Articulation Agreement in selecting these courses. A copy of the Agreement is
available from the Counseling Department.
The EAC/BYU transfer partnership does not
cover the transfer and applicability of major courses. You are encouraged to
consult with the prospective major department at BYU for recommendations on EAC
courses that can be taken toward your intended major.
