The Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) is designed for students planning to transfer to one of Arizona's three state universities (Arizona State University, University of Arizona, or Northern Arizona University) consisting of a block of 35 required credits that satisfy general curriculum requirements. These credits may be applied to the graduation requirements for many university majors.
The AGEC is divided into three areas:
Use the Course Equivalency Guide from the AZ Course Applicability System to determine the exact transferability of courses offered.
Associate Degrees for Transfer
GateWay offers two-year AA, AS and ABus degrees that transfer in full to Arizona's public universities.
- Associate in Arts (AA)
- Associate in Science (AS)
- Associate in Business (ABus)
The appropriate AGEC transfer block is built into these degrees. The AA, AS and ABus degrees generally provide the core classes needed to obtain a bachelor's degree.
Associate in General Studies (AGS)
The AGS degree is designed for students with flexible goals in education. Most credits are transferable and we strongly recommend consulting with an advisor about the specifics of transferability in:
- Family & Human Development
- International/Inter-cultural Studies
- Political Science
- Religious Studies
- Women's Studies
Associate in Business (ABus)
This degree is designed for Business Majors planning to transfer to ASU, NAU or the U of A. An Associate in Business General Requirements (ABus GR) requires 62-63 semester credits for the program of study.
This degree transfers as a block without loss of credit to AZ public universities. All semester credits used to satisfy the ABus GR will apply to university graduation requirements of the university major.
Special requirements apply for students planning to become Accounting or CIS Majors. See an advisor for details.
