PGM Code – AAUD
Direct Transfer Agreement
Program Description The Associate in Arts (AA) degree consists of 90 quarter credits earned in General Requirements, Distribution Requirements and Electives. The public community colleges and the four-year colleges and universities of the State of Washington have an established direct transfer agreement. That agreement allows students who hold the AA degree to transfer at least 90 quarter credits (60 semester credits) to four-year institutions for the purpose of satisfying most or all of the general education requirements of the receiving institution.
Common Course Numbering Please refer to www.edcc.edu/ccn for more information.
Credit/Grade Requirements Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 in all college-level courses and earn at least 30 college-level (100 level or above) credits at Edmonds Community College.
Cultural Diversity Requirement All students earning a degree or certificate of 45 credits or more must meet a cultural diversity (CD) requirement by taking at least five (5) credits of CD courses. To learn more, go to Academic Information – Cultural Diversity Requirement in the online academic catalog.
Intermediate Algebra This requirement may be satisfied by completion of two years of high school algebra, completion of Intermediate Algebra (MATH 090 ) with a grade of 2.0 or higher or placement into college-level math. Only the University of Washington retains this requirement, but all baccalaureate institutions in the State of Washington accepting the DTA (including UW) require successful completion of college-level math (100-level or above) or PHIL& 120 (see “Quantitative Analysis or Symbolic Reasoning” below). PHIL& 120 and all college-level math courses at EdCC currently require completion of Intermediate Algebra (MATH 090) with a grade of 2.0 or higher or placement into college-level math. Consult with an advisor early in your program planning to avoid errors in math course selection.
