2018-2019 College Catalog

General Associate Degree Requirements


Specific majors are not listed for the general Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees because baccalaureate degree program requirements vary at four-year institutions. General associate degree requirements provide a range of course options that permit students to design a program of study that closely matches the first two years of most baccalaureate degree programs.

Students not following a Tennessee Transfer Pathway or an articulation agreement should plan their program of study in consultation with their Pellissippi State advisor and an advisor at the receiving institution. Tables listing Pellissippi State courses and equivalent courses at four-year colleges and universities in Tennessee are available for use in program planning. The College also has transfer agreements with some private institutions for students with general A.A. and A.S. degrees. Links to transfer equivalency tables and to articulation and transfer agreements may be found at this site: www.pstcc.edu/advising/transfer/index.php.
