The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) requires colleges and universities to include a minimum of 15 semester credit hours (SCH) of general education courses in each associate degree plan. These credit hours must include at least one course from each of the following areas: humanities/fine arts, social/behavioral sciences, and natural science/mathematics.
For traditional transfer degrees, which are the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Arts in Teaching, Austin Community College (ACC) fulfills this requirement through the core curriculum.

For career and technical programs, which lead to the Associate of Applied Science, the 15 semester credit hours (SCH) of general education requirements will be specified in your degree plan.
