The Higher Education Commission (HEC) announced on Tuesday that it will not recognize two-year bachelor degrees, BA/BSc, undertaken after the 2018 academic year.
A notification issued by the HEC stated that universities must immediately stop offering these degree programs in line with the education commission’s decision to phase out letters notifying of the policy were issued on March 15, 2017, and July 11, 2019.
The HEC observed that the two-year degree programs were still being offered at universities and colleges affiliated with it despite its notifications.
“Degrees shall not be recognized by HEC for students enrolled in these programs after December 31, 2018.

In 2019, the HEC had announced that they will replace the two-year BA/BSc program with Associate Degree programs (AD) and changed the nomenclature for the degree.


The notification exclusively stated that the new postsecondary program would be called an ‘Associate Degree’ and soon the BA-BSc program would be discontinued.

The notification also stated that those students who enrolled before December 31, 2018, are allowed until December 2020 to complete their BA, BSc degrees and those, who failed the course, would be awarded the Associate Degree upon completion of the course.
The notification also said that the associated degree program aims to provide a general education that is broadly applicable and helps students gain marketable skills.
