A Transfer Degree
The Associate of Arts degree is primarily for students planning to transfer with junior standing to a four-year college or university for a baccalaureate degree. Satisfactory completion of an AA degree guarantees completion of the lower division general education requirements at UNR, UNLV or NSC. Students intending to transfer to other schools should see a counselor or follow the catalog of the transfer school.
In some cases, courses which may apply toward a WNC degree, may not transfer to UNR, UNLV, other Nevada community colleges, Nevada State College or to other colleges and universities. See a WNC counselor for the latest transfer information.
Courses with a number under 100 (such as ENG 95) are not applicable toward the Associate of Arts degree. All courses to be counted toward this degree must be university transferable.
