Completing an A.A. Degree at a Florida Public Institution?

Students who complete an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree within the state of Florida from a Florida public college will have already met the University's General Education requirements for graduation.

Completion of an A.S. / A.A.S. degree from (even from within the state of Florida) is different from completing the Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree at the same institution.  Often, A.S. / A.A.S. curricula is targeted to technical career-focused outcomes.  These degrees often do not include the academic core curriculum that is found in the A.A. degree program, and technical coursework is not able to be transferred.
