AA Degree FAQ
Am I eligible to apply for the AA Degree?
The AA Degree is based on the successful completion of studies in the foreign language major in residence at DLIFLC (Monterey, CA). Also required is the completion of specific general education requirements; which may be earned through testing or coursework at other accredited institutions.
Students who graduated from a resident DLIFLC Basic language program with a class start date after 1 October 1991 may apply. Students who graduated from a resident DLIFLC Intermediate language program with a class start date after 1 February 1998 may apply. Advanced and DTRA programs are not eligible.
Basic program students must achieve a minimum DLPT score of L2/R2/S1+ at graduation or later. Intermediate program students must achieve a minimum DLPT score of L2+/R2+/S2. A cumulative grade point average of a “C” (2.0) or higher is required for DLIFLC coursework. Final cumulative DLIFLC semester grades below a D are not acceptable.
Students must have completed 45 semester credits at DLIFLC plus 18 semester credits in general education. Intermediate program students who did not complete the Basic program must take an additional general education course in Critical Thinking in addition to transferring in elective credit. Students who completed a Basic program in one language and an Intermediate program in a different language, are still required to complete the additional Critical Thinking course for the Intermediate program. Intermediate students should contact the AA Degree Office Advisors for assistant with their degree plan and required credit review.
