Many students arrive at MCC undecided about their major area of study and are uncertain about where they hope to transfer. Our Associate of Arts (AA) Degree is designed to help move students in the right direction while transitioning through this “major” selection process. In fact, in 2018, 85% of our students were enrolled in an AA degree track. Students can then transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree.
Students are encouraged to make it a priority to explore opportunities, in the hope of clarifying their degree interests and transfer options as soon as possible. Of course, this process is different for every student, and does not always happen within a neat time frame. Ideally, students begin to communicate with their choice of transfer school as early as possible in the AA degree process.
