ASSOCIATE IN ARTS PROGRAM

Students who have completed units in their AA program as prescribed by their curriculum checklist, must submit their AA Portfolio requirement and 

APPLY for GRADUATION on the announced schedule for AA Application for Graduation. This allows the Student Records Evaluator to check your records for complete courses and units during the two-year AA program. After successful portfolio and records evaluation, the college will release the list of AA applicants for graduation and notify you thru email. Your portfolio will be included in the Student Publication: UPCFA AA Portfolio Catalog.

AA graduates who wish to further their studies and proceed with the BFA Program (for another two years) must APPLY for CHANGE of PROGRAM from AA to BFA before they can register for courses in the BFA program the succeeding semester.

Each department has its own specific requirements, guidelines and procedures for Graduation. This will be communicated with you in the Department level.
