Degree Pathways

Each degree pathway is a planned course of study that includes suggested courses to satisfy Valencia’s general education requirements for the A.A. degree and the statewide Common Program Prerequisites (CPPs) for the specific upper division major to transfer to the University of Central Florida, and/or another Florida public institution.

Students who plan to transfer to a restricted access or limited-access program are responsible for completing the specific requirements of the institution to which they will transfer, as completion of a degree pathway does not guarantee admission to an upper division program if that university program has restricted access or limited-access status.

Financial Aid

In order to be eligible for and calculated in your enrollment status for financial aid, courses for which you are enrolled must count toward your Associate in Arts degree (36 credits of general education and 24 credits of electives). CPPs may not be calculated in your enrollment status for financial aid purposes if you took other course work outside of the Associate in Arts degree requirements (examples include prior course work from prerequisites, changing a major, and transfer course work).

A.A. degree-seeking students must satisfy entry testing requirements and satisfactorily complete all mandatory courses in reading, student success, mathematics, English and English for Academic Purposes in which the student is placed and must satisfy Valencia’s foreign language proficiency requirement.

Valencia offers the following degree pathways:
