You can earn your Associate in Arts (AA) degree and transfer directly to one of our American partner universities to complete the last two years of your bachelor’s degree: University of Houston (Hospitality and Restaurant Management), University of South Florida (Business Administration), University of Central Florida (Industrial Engineering) and University of London International Programmes (Economics).
You can also elect to transfer to a variety of public and private institutions across the country. We can help you find one of the thousands of US bachelor’s degree programs that is the right fit for you.
What is an associate’s degree?
In the simplest terms, an AA degree is the first two years of your bachelor’s degree. The courses you take for the AA degree are the same courses you would take during the first two years at a U.S. university. You will take general education classes, which include subjects such as mathematics, English, natural sciences, humanities, health, and social sciences. You will also take electives that build the foundation for your chosen major.
What does it mean to transfer?
You will start your American education through the Broward College Program at USIL and then finish your bachelor’s degree at a university in the United States. A “2+2” system means that students who earn credits at a community college can take their credits with them when they transfer to a four-year university. Broward College has agreements with universities in the state of Florida that ensure that BC credits will count towards your four-year degree program.
