Secondary Education Transfer Program A.A.T.

Department: Education

Total Credit Hours: 64 credits

The Missouri public 4-year institutions of higher education, and some private 4-year institutions, have agreed to accept the AAT as equivalent to their first two years of teacher education. Thus, a student who completes an AAT at SCC should have no more credit hours to complete during the last two years than a native 4-year student at that institution. Because course content is organized in different configurations at different institutions, you may repeat some content areas, but not credit hours. Students who do not complete the AAT will transfer course by course; individual institutions have agreed to transfer specific courses but have not guaranteed that students will have no more credits to complete than their native students. Check with your transfer institution to see if you will need to have a certain score on the ACT test for admittance to their institution.

The most current listing of institutions that will accept the AAT is available at http://www.dhe.mo.gov/cota. Students need to work closely with their transfer institution to ensure that courses taken at SCC will meet degree requirements and that all entrance requirements have been met for the transfer school.
