The Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT), and Associate of Science (AS) degrees are general transfer degrees. They do not officially include a major or minor course of study. With an AA, AAT or AS from ASUB, a student can transfer to any Arkansas public 4-year school with junior class status and be guaranteed that the lower division general education core requirements have been completed for the transfer school.
Thinking of Transferring? Use the Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) from the Arkansas Department of Higher Education to see how your classes transfer.
