Are the requirements for the AA and AS degrees different?

Both degrees require 60 credits to complete but there are slight differences. The AA includes the complete IAI General Education Core Curriculum. The AS has a slightly higher math and science course requirement. AS degree students have the option to take a couple of additional courses at BHC or after transfer (to an Illinois institution) if they want to also complete the IAI GECC.
Check with a Black Hawk College advisor or the admissions representative at your transfer school to determine if the AA or AS best meets your transfer goals.
