Associate in Fine Arts in Visual Arts Degree (AFA) A10600 (Proposed Fall 2017)

The Associate in Fine Arts in Visual Arts degree shall be granted for a planned program of study consisting of a minimum of 60 semester hours of college transfer courses. In order to meet graduation requirements for Cleveland Community College, only courses in which the student earns a grade of "C" or better may be counted towards the Associate in Fine Arts degree. Within the degree program, the institution shall include opportunities for the achievement of competence in reading, writing, oral communication, fundamental mathematical skills, and basic computer use.

Courses are approved for transfer through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement. Community college graduates who have earned 60 semester hours of academic credit in approved transfer courses with a grade of "C" or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale will receive at least 60 semester hours of academic credit upon admission to a university. Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions. Courses offered through bilateral agreements may not transfer to all receiving institutions.

Students are encouraged to complete the two-year degree at Cleveland Community College before transferring to the four-year college. In all instances, college transfer students should complete the Universal General Education Transfer Core before transferring, as recommended by the State University System of North Carolina. Please see Requirements for Graduation as stated in the Academic Regulations section of the Academic Bulletin and Student Handbook.
