42 Hour Block & Associate of Arts

Truman State University is a signatory for the Missouri 42-Hour General Education Block. Students who complete the General Education Block at one Missouri college or university and who later transfer to another Missouri college or university will satisfy the general education requirements of the college or university to which they transfer, provided that school is also a signatory.

Students who have completed an Associate of Arts (AA) degree, a Truman-approved Associate of Science degree (Applied Science degree not included), or the Missouri 42-Hour General Education Block from an accredited college or university will fulfill the Essential Skills, the Modes of Inquiry, and the Intercultural and Truman Week requirements of Truman’s Liberal Studies Program. In addition, students who have completed the Associate’s degree from a public institution in the State of Missouri, or who have completed the Missouri 42-Hour General Education Block, may also fulfill the Missouri Statute requirement.

Coursework for transfer students who have not completed the Associate of Arts degree, a Truman-approved Associate of Science degree, or the Missouri 42-Hour General Education Block will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis.
