Second AA?

I got my AA in Liberal Arts in May if this year and am currently completing my BA in History. I will be graduating in early August (2013).
I was wondering is it possible to go back to CC and get a second AA in a complexity different field (Sciences/Medical) and transfer to a University and then get a second degree? Do you universities accept this and allow me to pursue a second degree and my transfer credit from second AA.
How would getting a second AA work out and will it be a problem to do?

    I'll answer my own question in case someone has a similar question in the future.
    I called up and yes you can get a second AA and continue on and transfer to earn your second Bachelor's.

    But you won't be eligible for any aid other than unsubsidized federal loans for that AA after a bachelors degree or for a second bachelors. If you know noe that you want the other bachelors degree, stop what you are doing, pick up the pre-reqs for the other major, and then go to the 4-year school and do a double major if you still care about English.

    Whoops, that should read "history".
