Collin College provides general academic courses and electives for students who plan to transfer to a college or university. Because of the various transfer requirements at colleges and universities, and to ensure enrollment in appropriate courses, students should verify course transferability and degree applicability with a Collin College academic advisor and/or the college or university that they plan to attend.

To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements.

Check with your transfer institution before registering for general studies electives to make sure your courses will be degree applicable to your bachelor’s degree at the transfer institution.

History coursework offers foundational knowledge for students interested in completing an associate degree as well as students pursuing a bachelor’s degree. The American History survey courses meet the state’s requirement for six hours of American history. In addition to the survey courses, the History department also offers courses in Western Civilizations, Texas History, African American History, World Civilizations, and Mexican American History.
