To receive the AA degree ( and thereby qualify to continue to Emory College), students must complete sixty-six semester hours (sixty-four academic hours and two physical education hours) with a minimum 2.0 GPA and subject to the requirements stated below. Students may not transfer between Oxford College and Emory College.
I. First-Year Writing Requirement: Students must satisfactorily complete English 185 (or, for multilingual students, English 186) during the first year of their enrollment at Oxford College. Entering international students who need more language support may be placed into English 184, in which case they must complete the First-Year Writing Requirement by taking English 185 in the semester immediately following successful completion of English 184. Students may be eligible to exempt the First-Year Writing Requirement with Advanced Placement (AP) credit, International Baccalaureate (IB) credit, or transfer credit.
II. Continuing Writing Requirement: In addition to the First-Year Writing Requirement, students must satisfactorily complete a writing rich course at Oxford College. For the purpose of fulfilling the Continuing Writing Requirement, students must attain a grade of "C" or better in the writing rich course.
