Eligible students will soon be awarded associate degrees on the road to their bachelor’s degrees 

Starting this fall semester, undergraduate Shockers working toward their bachelor’s degrees who meet the requirements will automatically be awarded associate degrees.

While Wichita State has offered an Associate of Arts (AA) degree for some time, the new initiative will award the AA degree automatically every semester to undergraduate students who meet the requirements while they pursue their bachelor’s degree. The degree is awarded to celebrate their achievement of making it halfway to their bachelor’s.

The AA degree exists under the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Students can contact the Registrar’s Office at 316-978-3055 for further information about the process.
