Associate in Arts (AA) academic advisors are faculty within the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences. AA academic advisors are assigned through the college orientation process conducted by Orientation Services. The advisor will work closely with the AA student to choose courses that not only will fulfill curriculum requirements for the AA degree but also, in most cases, fulfill the general education requirements at the four-year institution (if the AA student plans to transfer). Potential transfer students should also get a catalog from and perhaps even have a contact at the prospective college/university.
The choices for courses to fulfill the requirements for the AA degree are offered in the traditional classroom and online. Though not all of the transfer needs for the student's intended transfer institution can be met online, it is possible for one to attain the AA degree through TTC Online College. A sample of choices of courses for the AA degree online can be found here. For the AA degree seeking student who plans to transfer, the student may have to do a combination of traditional classroom and online courses, but the majority of the requirements can be done online.
The AA degree seeking student will find the degree practical and courses transferable for general education requirements for majors in the following disciplines at most four year institutions:
- Art/Art History
- Business Administration
- Foreign Language
- Political Science
- Other Humanities, Fine Arts and Social Sciences.
