*General Education Requirement Options

 

Notes:

  • Student has multiple options for general education requirements within the AAS degree and courses might transfer in differently depending on which courses the student chooses. However, UAF has several GEM-approved courses that students can take to meet their general education requirements. These can be found here: https://uaf.edu/veterans/students/gem.php
  • When possible, it is recommended that the student take general and program electives for the AAS that count toward the UAF general education requirements including the following (if not taken as part of the AAS general education requirements) as part of the AAS degree: two natural science courses with labs, math at the precalculus level or higher, statistics, foreign language courses, oral communication, and a second written communication course.
  • If students can complete the recommended courses above during their AAS degree, they will have fewer than 60 college credits to complete their BAM degree at UAF.
  • In order to satisfy the oral communication requirement at UAF, the course needs a minimum of five speeches. Make sure to include any additional information that is needed for transfer credit to determine course equivalency if oral communications course is not taken through UAF.
  • Grades of C or better are needed to transfer to UAF.
  • Grades of C- or better are needed in all courses taken at UAF.
  • A total of 120 credits are needed to earn a bachelor’s degree from UAF.
  • This sample schedule is based on an AAS degree of 64 credit hours. The actual number of transfer credits awarded will be based on the number of courses successfully completed at CCAF or another regionally accredited school prior to transfer and may be more or less than 64 credit hours.
