Program Information

Associate in Arts


Students planning to earn a baccalaureate degree at a four-year institution may complete the first two years at Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College by earning the Associate in Arts degree.


60 Credit Hours

A student may attend full-time (12 hours or more per academic term) or part-time (less than 12 hours per academic term) to complete the Associate in Arts degree. A student may earn this degree in conjunction with another degree offered by the institution. Day and evening classes are available. The degree can be completed by full-time students in four or five academic terms. Many classes are available in a variety of formats, including traditional, online, and hybrid formats.

Students are encouraged to consult with an academic advisor at Southern in developing their educational plans. Students should carefully choose courses fulfilling the requirements for the Associate in Arts which meet their future baccalaureate degree requirements as each university has slightly different course requirements. Toward this goal, Southern is prepared to assist each student to become familiar with the catalog of the institution to which the student plans to transfer.

Campus Location: All (Not all classes are offered on every campus. Consult course schedules to see what is available at each location.)
