The college offers Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts in Teaching, Associate of Science and Associate of Applied Science degrees and certificate programs. Students who plan to graduate from Collin College should request a degree plan prior to the completion of 30 credit hours. Students must be currently admitted to Collin College to request a degree plan. Students may graduate under any of the college’s catalogs from the preceding five years as long as they were enrolled under that catalog; however, students may benefit from graduating under the requirements of the most recent catalog.

Degrees and certificates that have been deactivated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) must be completed within three years of the date the program ended.

A student who completes specific course requirements for a degree or certificate with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 is a candidate for graduation. Any student who entered Collin College prior to Fall 2008 and had transfer coursework transcripted will have those transfer course grade points included in their Collin College grade point average.

TSI requirements must be complete in order to be considered a candidate for graduation.

Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts in Teaching, Associate of Science or Associate of Applied Science degree honors will be awarded to students with the following cumulative grade point average at Collin College:

4.0                Summa cum laude
3.75-3.99     Magna cum laude
3.5-3.74       Cum laude

Honors are calculated using all Collin College college-level coursework and transcripted transfer coursework prior to Fall 2008. (Grades earned in developmental education courses are not included.)

Students participating in commencement ceremonies must purchase graduation regalia (cap and gown) from the college bookstore.

Students may earn the following degrees:

  • Associate of Arts or Associate of Science
  • Associate of Arts in Teaching
  • Associate of Arts or Science in a Field of Study
  • Associate of Applied Science and certificates

To graduate, students must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours at Collin and satisfy all other degree requirements. Non-traditional and developmental course credit does not meet this residency requirement .

Candidates for an associate degree or certificate should submit an application for graduation at the beginning of the semester of degree completion.
