Online AA

Get Your Associates in Arts Transfer Degree Online!

The Associates in Arts (AA) Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) degree is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor degree program, per the direct transfer degree agreement specifications. The degree meets the first two years of general education requirements at senior institutions. It transfers to most Bachelor of Arts degree programs at all Washington four-year institutions. For more information about the AA DTA at Clark College, see the College Catalog and the DTA specifications.

To complete the AA DTA online, you can take a variety of combinations of online classes. You will want to check the Online Schedule of Classes for specific classes available online during a specific quarter. We have created and maintain an Online AA Course Menu to better help you strategize your degree path.

Online courses only differ from on-campus, face-to-face classes in the way that they are delivered. This means that students enroll in online classes the same way as the college’s traditional classes and follow the same schedules; for example, the same quarterly start date. Students are expected to log into their online class(es) on the first day of the quarter.

In online classes, most, if not all, interaction takes place through written assignments, discussion board messages and email. Good reading and writing skills are essential! While online classes give you flexibility to schedule your work, they are not easier than face-to-face classes, they don’t take less time, and they require more self-discipline. Take the self-assessment test to see if online classes are right for you. Also, make sure you have the necessary computer equipment to take online classes.
