While this suggested curricula will satisfy the requirements of most senior institutions, it is the students’ responsibility to identify as early as possible the institution to which they will transfer and to ascertain the specific requirements of that institution for the freshman and sophomore year. Each student’s curriculum should be planned by the student and a counselor or academic advisor with a specific four-year institution in mind.

Bachelor’s degrees awarded by most senior colleges and universities require 120 semester hours, or approximately four years of study. The Associate of Arts degree certifies completion of the first two years of study, or a minimum of 60 semester hours.
