I'm just wondering after I graduate this December with my AA from a community college and holding 68 credits.....when I transfer to a 4 year to finish up my degree in Elementary Education, how many more credits do I need to finally graduate? And If I take the max per semester and summers like i'm doing now, how fast can I finish if I start in January? Thanks

I believe it's approximately 96 credits. It is best to check with the 4-year school that you choose. Best of luck.

I like your answer of 96 credits, do you know why everyone is saying 120? 96 would be so much faster. thanks

Ummm... something else to consider is your 4 year school accepting all 68 credits? Kean accepted all my credits from MCC, BUT I was a Liberal Arts major while at MCC. You might want to see which classes will transfer over as some of the 4 yr. schools want you to take certain course at their facility only

Good luck!!

I am a Liberal Arts General major at BCC and Montclair had said that would be fine and not to take any courses at BCC specific to Teaching as they won't carry over, so i'm guessing and hoping i'm fine with that by what they said.

And then only 30 credits left?

I would check what the 4 yr credit requirements are to graduate from your 4 yr school. I seem to remember it being a lot more than that. I know I did a lot more than that at Kean. It was definitely a full 4 semesters. My senior student teaching was also a semester.

I've always thought it was 128 credits for a 4 year degree.
