The Associate in Engineering Science, Associate in Science, Associate in Arts, Associate in Fine Arts in Art, and Associate in Fine Arts in Art Education degrees are designed to transfer and fulfill the course requirements for the first two years of a baccalaureate degree. However, the Associate in Fine Arts in Art Degree will require 3 additional credit hours in a Social Science to complete the Statewide General Education Core Course requirements (GECC). Additionally, the Associate in Science will require 3 additional credit hours in a Social Science and 3 additional credit hours in a Humanities to satisfy the Statewide General Education Core Course requirements. The Statewide General Education Core Courses can be completed at DACC, prior to transfer or at the transfer institution.
A well-planned program of study should concurrently meet DACC degree requirements as well as successfully transfer to fulfill curriculum requirements at a baccalaureate institution. It is the responsibility of the student to know and to observe the DACC degree requirements of his/ her curriculum as they are specified in the official college catalog dated the same year as their entry as a student. A student wishing to graduate with AA, AS, AES, AFA or AFAE degree may choose to meet the graduation requirements stated in the catalog in effect during the student's initial enrollment at DACC or those requirements stated in the current catalog at the time of their graduation. A break in enrollment of six consecutive terms (including summer) shall mean that a student must meet the degree requirements in the catalog published at the time of re-enrollment or the requirements as stated in the catalog at the time of their graduation. However, it is strongly recommended that the student meet with a counselor/advisor in planning a course of study which is equivalent to the lower-division course work at the institution to which the student plans to complete a baccalaureate degree.
Candidates for the Associate in Engineering Science, Associate in Science, Associate in Arts, Associate in Fine Arts in Art and Associate in Fine Arts in Art Education degrees must present an organized program of study which meets DACC degree requirements and is composed of course selections from the following groups of general education and specialty classes.
