Transfer courses may be applied to General Education requirements in accordance with the underlying principles of the General Education program.
The Arizona community colleges and UA have agreed upon a common structure for a general education core curriculum. This common agreement is called the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC).
AP classes are offered in select high schools. Credits earned through AP exams may be counted toward major or minor fields of study or General Education requirements.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is offered in select high schools and leads to exams which can be used to qualify for college credit.
The examinations offered under the CLEP were designed primarily to allow people to achieve college-level credit for knowledge acquired through self-education and experience.
