Associate Degrees and University Transfer
The associate degrees in this list give you the opportunity for an in-depth study of your chosen field.
Many of our associate degrees will also transfer to a four-year university upon graduation. With these, you can complete most of your general education coursework at the Maricopa Community Colleges and have guaranteed acceptance to one of our 40+ university and college partners to complete your bachelor's degree.
Be sure to check with your advisor if you plan to move on to a four-year university to ensure your degree program credits will successfully transfer, or explore the Bachelor of Arts in Elementary and Special Education degree offered at Rio Salado.
Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges to complete these degrees.
