I would advise that you contact the Transfer Counselor at the college where you completed your Associates Degree. Ask what articulations the school has with other four year colleges and universities particular to your field of study. In addition, to get a better idea of the opportunities available to you at the Bachelors level, go to and take advantage of the sites College MatchMaker. Here you can research colleges particular to name, major, and geographical area. Do not tire in your attempt to further your education. The higher the degree, the more doors that will be opened to you. Viper1

No, it's the bachelors degree that's necessary. If one were to start with a two year degree, the sequential order would be the associates degree, followed by the bachelors degree, then the masters, and lastly the doctorate. Some individuals prefer to start with an associates degree, while others prefer to start with the bachelors.

It will depend on the course requirements for the bachelors degree. Typically you can apply your course work from your asscoiates degree to the bachelors - as long as those course meet requirements for the associates degree. Only the coursees you took for your associates degree that will count are the ones that need to be taken for the bachelors. It depends on the degree program. If you got an associates in Business and want a bachelors in psych - then you eill probably need more than 2 years to get the BA - Depending on the school and program you attend. It will all depend on if the bachelors program will accept your prior coursework. So to answer your question, it is not the amount of years that will determin when you will get the bachelors but the amount of courses you still need. If all your associates courses count toward the bachelors, then you would only need around 60 more credits to get a bachelors, which normally takes 2 years full-time. Probably though, some classes wont transfer to the bachelor program, but it will all depend on what courses you have taken and what program you wish to attend for the bachelors. Hope this helps!

Answer 1: Assuming that the two years of the associates degree count toward the entire first two (freshman and sophomore) years of the bachelors degree, then the student would enter said bachelors degree as a full junior, and would then need to complete only the junior and senior years. In such a circumstance, it would take just two (2) years of full-time study, after the associates degree, to earn a bachelors degree.An associates degree is nothing more than one-half of a bachelors degree. Simple as that.

Answer 1: A bachelors degree is a four-year degree containing 120 semester credit hours. An associates degree is a two-year degree containing 60 semester credit hours. Someone with an associates degree, then, would need to go to school for two more years, and earn an additional 60 semester credit hours in order to earn a bachelors.Sadly, though, it might not be quite as easy as all that. If the institution that awards the bachelors degree decides that something is missing from the associates degree, then some additional coursework, too make-up for whatever the associates degree lacks, might be required. Most bachelors programs don't require so much that it will add another year or anything like that; but it's entirely possible that an entire summer session's worth of additional courses may be necessary. With any luck, though, the entirety of the associates degree will count as the entire first two years of the bachelors degree, and so, therefore, an additional two years is all it will take to earn the bachelors.
