 Achieving & Excelling

Students come to El Paso Community College for a variety of reasons—to transfer to a university, directly enter the workforce, get a promotion, become college-ready, or just have fun and grow personally.


El Paso Community College offers a transferable Associate of Arts degree. This degree features blocks of instruction in seven key academic areas which is the 42-hour core curriculum. Once a student has successfully completed all the courses in the core curriculum with an average of "C" or better, that block of courses is fully transferable to any Texas state-supported college or university. The student can earn the Associate of Arts degree by completing an additional 20 semester credit hours of elective courses from one or more of the academic areas of concentration or Fields of Study.
