Why Earn an Associate of Arts at Front Range Community College?

More and more jobs require applicants to graduate from a four-year college or university. FRCC's two-year general AA program is a supportive stepping-stone to your future bachelor's degree.

In this program, you'll take general education courses that will give you a strong academic foundation and prepare you to succeed in upper-level classes. You'll develop critical thinking, research and writing skills to help you reach your goals. You can also use your general AA courses to explore different major options.

FRCC provides the same rigorous classes as a four-year university but with much more support. Our average class size is 15, meaning you won't learn in large lecture halls. You'll study under our engaging professors, who have earned master's degrees or doctorates.

We provide online and night course options, giving you even more flexibility to complete your program. We also offer many helpful resources for students, such as our Academic Support Centers, to help you improve your study skills. At FRCC, there will be someone supporting you at every step.
