Central Lakes College

An Associate in Arts Degree earned at Central Lakes College is recommended as the transfer degree that enables a student to transfer to a Minnesota four-year college or university. Through special agreements, the A.A. Degree, in most cases, allows a student to continue with a "junior status" at the selected state university.

Included in the Associate in Arts Degree is the MINNESOTA GENERAL EDUCATION TRANSFER CURRICULUM which contains the minimum number of credits (41) needed to complete general education requirements at all public colleges and universities in the state of Minnesota. These requirements apply to:

  • new students who enroll for fall semester 2000 or after, and
  • students who have been absent from this college one academic year or longer.
    • At least one semester before you plan to graduate, you must officially "Apply to Graduate."
    • A minimum of 15 credits must be earned at Central Lakes College to be eligible for an Associate in Arts Degree.
    • A total of 64 college level credits are required for an Associate in Arts Degree.
