Belmont College

Associate of Arts/Science

Belmont College now offers students the opportunity to begin their bachelor’s degree right here at Belmont.  After taking the first two years of your bachelor’s degree at Belmont, you can transfer to the four-year college of your choice to complete your degree. 

Two degree pathways are available.  Graduates of the Arts and Science pre-baccalaureate degree programs earn either the Associate of Arts (AA) or the Associate of Science (AS) degree.  Both degrees provide a liberal arts education.  The Associate of Arts curriculum includes a slightly greater emphasis on the humanities, while the Associate of Science curriculum includes more mathematics and science course work.  Both programs include the general education core requirements standard for baccalaureate degrees.

Both the Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science degree programs include options for required courses across the general-education categories of English and Communications, Mathematics, Natural and Physical Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Arts and Humanities.

Belmont College courses that are part of the Ohio Board of Regents’ Transfer Module as well as Belmont courses approved for the OBR Transfer Assurance Guides are embedded in both the Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science pre-baccalaureate degrees.  These approved courses transfer successfully between Belmont College and other colleges and universities in Ohio.  Most courses in both degree pathways will parallel courses offered in the freshman and sophomore years at a state four-year college or university.  The coursework of the AA and AS degrees may also transfer to colleges and universities beyond Ohio.  Since students are required to complete specific course sequences and electives to earn baccalaureate degrees, you will need to plan your program of study in collaboration with Advising , to ensure the eventual transfer of your selected courses.

Belmont College recognizes the important connection between student success and academic preparedness.  Depending upon placement, you may be required to complete some Transitional Studies Courses before enrolling in the college-level courses within the AA or AS program.
