However, if students are not admitted to a limited access degree program, completing the Associate in Arts is still possible by completing the courses in any AA with AS focus.  All students considering a limited access program should review the AS application for all the requirements needed and for the appropriate time to apply to a program.  It is important to note that students are not required to complete the AA degree to apply to an AS, limited access program.
