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. 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. 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.
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. There is a graduation fee for the Associate of Arts degree.
Associate of Arts graduates must apply by February 28, 2017, to participate in the May commencement ceremony. If you are not going to participate, applications will still be accepted after this date. Associate of Arts students who are participating in commencement are encouraged to attend Salute to Grads for their term.
