The Associate in Arts program is a two-year course of study that covers the core materials needed to complete the first two years of a four-year bachelor's degree. The A.A. program for each area parallels the State University System's curriculum. The credits students earn at Seminole State can be transferred to a four-year college or university of their choice.
