Associate of Arts (A.A.)

The Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree is the basic transfer degree and the equivalent of the first two years of a baccalaureate degree. It is the primary basis for admission of transfer students to upper division study in a state university or college. Every A.A. graduate in Florida shall be granted admission to an upper division program consistent with Florida Statutes Section 1007.23. Admission to the student's preferred public postsecondary institution or program is not guaranteed. Santa Fe College will award the A.A. degree after a student completes 60 credit hours of coursework (including 36 hours of general education courses), demonstrates competency in a foreign language, obtains a mastery of college-level competencies in communication and computation, achieves a minimum 2.0 grade point average in all courses attempted and completes at least 25% of all A.A. credit hours at Santa Fe. The A.A. degree usually requires 2 years for completion.
