Associate of Arts Degree
Students may earn an Associate of Arts degree by successfully completing a minimum of 60 units, including the 45 units of the General Education requirements (Communication & Calculation Skills and University Requirements) and the U.S. Racial/Ethnic Diversity requirement with a University of Wisconsin-Whitewater 2.00 cumulative GPA. The General Education requirements are the same as those for baccalaureate degrees. Students do not need to complete GENED 390 but must complete a GH (humanities) course to complete University Requirements. Please refer to the Associate of Arts Academic Advisement Report (AAR) for additional details on requirements.
15 of the 60 units must be taken in coursework at UW-Whitewater. Students must be enrolled at UW-Whitewater during the term in which the requirements are completed. Application for an Associate of Arts degree must be made no later than two years after the last term of attendance. An Associate of Arts degree cannot be received at the same time as a baccalaureate degree or subsequent to the awarding of a baccalaureate degree. Associate of Arts degree candidates do not participate in the commencement ceremony. There is a graduation fee for the Associate of Arts degree.
