The following guidelines are for the purpose of applying course work transferred from institutions using quarter-hours to the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) and all transfer degrees in the transfer model.
1. One (1.00) quarter hour = 0.66 repeating semester hours.
2. Quarter-hour courses may be applied in each AGEC category using the following formulae:
a. No fewer than four quarter-hours of coursework are required to fulfill a 3 semester AGEC categorical requirement (4 quarter-hours for 2.67 semester credits).
b. No fewer than five quarter-hours of coursework are required to fulfill a 4 semester-hour AGEC categorical requirement (5 quarter-hours for 3.33 semester credits).
c. No fewer than eight quarter-hours of coursework are required to fulfill a 6 semester-hour AGEC categorical requirement (8 quarter-hours for 5.33 semester credits).
d. No fewer than twelve quarter-hours of coursework are required to fulfill a 9 semester-hour AGEC categorical requirement (12 quarter-hours for 8.0 semester credits).
The minimum credit hours for the AGEC (35 semester hours) must be met for the granting institution to certify an AGEC. A deficiency in an AGEC category due to quarter-hour application must be recovered by additional credits to a total of 35 AGEC credits.
