Evening AAS-DTA

Wenatchee Valley College offers a full complement of academic courses during evening hours, between 5:30 and 10 p.m. By taking two classes per quarter, possibly only two evenings per week, you can complete all requirements for the Associate of Arts and Sciences degree in as little as two years. 

The college offers a variety of hybrid, online and interactive televison (ITV) courses that apply to this degree. See the course finder for a complete listing of all credit classes. You should realize that neither the evening nor the distance degree  offerings can accommodate all specific majors, and that only by attending classes on campus during the day can you specialize in most specific majors through WVC.

Following are degree requirements for the evening associate of arts and sciences degree. You must complete at least 90 credit hours in college transfer courses numbered 100 and above with a minimum college grade point average of 2.0.

  • Writing skills: 10 credits
  • Quantitative skills: 5 credits
  • Humanities: 15 credits
  • Natural sciences: 15 credits
  • Social sciences: 15 credits
  • Electives: 30 credits minimum; no more than 15 credits of "restricted electives." 
  • Diversity requirement: Starting fall 2018, new students seeking an AAS-DTA degree from WVC will need to take a minimum of 5 credits from diversity courses as part of the 90 credits required to graduate. Courses that meet this requirement are marked on the degree requirements sheet. 

Earning an associate (transfer) degree is especially important if you plan to attend a four-year institution with a selective admissions policy. Thanks to the state Intercollegiate Relations Committee agreement, a transfer degree from Wenatchee Valley College guarantees transfer with junior standing to 16 colleges and universities in Washington state. Merely completing two years of schooling at WVC without the degree may not give you all of the necessary courses for junior standing.

Virtually all WVC courses will transfer, but not all undergraduate courses will help with your major. The sooner you select your major and the school to which you wish to transfer, the better you can choose the classes that will be most useful. Each four-year school has its own transfer requirements.
