If you are planning to transfer from Ohio University to another institution, you are advised to complete the transfer module as part of your A.A. or A.S. degree. These degrees are available on all campuses. Each degree requires a minimum of 60 hours. A maximum of 15 hours earned through the experiential learning program may be applied to the A.A. or A.S. degree. At least 20 of the total credits earned toward the A.A. or A.S. must be Ohio University credits. In addition, at least 50 percent of the coursework taken in the area of concentration for the A.A./A.S. degree programs must be completed through Ohio University.
Technical courses count only as electives for both the A.A. and A.S. degrees. You must earn at least a 2.0 GPA in the area of concentration and overall to earn the degree. If you plan to earn either the A.A. or A.S. degree, contact the director of degree programs in University College so that the valid major code can be properly recorded.
