Deadline for completion of liberal arts A.A. degree
Students completing A.A. degree requirements with the major of liberal arts, a program which was deleted from the DVC catalog in 2004, are advised that they must satisfy all requirements by the close of summer 2009, due to State regulations.  Students unable to do so will have to select another major to complete their degree, and may see a counselor for assistance.
Transfer Center
