Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC-A)

Credit Hours Required: 35

The Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) is designed to fulfill all lower division General Education requirements at the public universities in Arizona. The AGEC-A is the appropriate curriculum for students who plan to major in fields in the Liberal Arts or programs of study other than business or science, and will transfer as a block without loss of credit to Arizona's public universities.

Upon completion of all 35 credit hours of the AGEC-A with a grade of "C" or higher, the student will receive recognition of completion on their Yavapai College transcript. Arizona residents who complete an AGEC-A and who have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher have assured admission upon application to one of the state universities in Arizona.

The AGEC-A also fulfills general education requirements for the Associate of Arts degrees at Yavapai College.
