After You Finish

Degree Path
The Associate in Arts degree is designed to transfer to a bachelor's degree at a state university or SPC. Along with classes to prepare you for your major at the four-year level, you also take at least 36 hours in these general education areas.

Guaranteed transfer to state universities - Florida's 2+2 system
Once you have earned your A.A. from SPC, you are guaranteed admission as a junior to one of the state's public universities to pursue a Bachelor of Arts or certain Bachelor of Science degrees. In Florida, this is called the 2+2 system, which allows you to pursue a bachelor's degree by first attending a state or community college and then transferring to a four-year institution. At SPC, you take the same general education courses you would take as a freshman and sophomore at a university, but you get smaller classes and lower tuition costs - about 40 percent less than Florida's public universities. Explore SPC's A.A. transfer degree options. Exceptions to the 2+2 guarantee The 2+2 guarantee, however, does not automatically grant you admission to high demand universities or certain limited access programs and majors, as access to these is very competitive. Admission to these programs may require an additional admission process and can be based on GPA and completing the foreign language requirement and all common prerequisites.
