Secondary Education Degree Pathways

Degree pathways are designed for the student who plans to transfer to a Florida public university as a junior to complete a Bachelor’s degree after completing an Associate in Arts degree at Valencia. Students who plan to transfer to a limited-access program are responsible for completing the specific requirements of the institution to which they will transfer as completion of this degree pathway does not guarantee admission to an upper division limited-access program.

These degree pathways include the Common Program Prerequisites (CPPs) which are required for transfer to a Secondary Education major at the University of Central Florida and/or any Florida public institution. Please note the CPPs for the appropriate Secondary Education discipline below.

Start Right - Pathway Plan

You are encouraged to develop an education plan that includes the courses required for your A.A. degree and the CPPs needed for transfer to your intended bachelor's major. For course sequencing recommendations, visit the Degree Pathways website. Once you have created your plan, you are encouraged to review it with an advisor.

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).
