After 2 years and 65 credits in Fast Path,

you’ll complete an Associate in Arts transfer degree. This degree is accepted (and guaranteed!) at 24 Illinois colleges, including all state universities. Many out-of-state colleges/universities also accept it. This means you’ll start as a junior and will have completed gen-ed requirements. The Associate in Arts is ideal for students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts, which includes areas such as communications, psychology, social work, education, history and English. If you plan to enter a more science or technology-based area, please check before enrollment to make sure this is the right program for you.

Icon with the text, "Who can enroll?"

Because the program includes every class for the degree, we are gearing it to students who have never taken a college class before, but everyone is encouraged to apply. There are some testing requirements to be ready for college. The KCC testing requirements web page has more details.
