DALLAS (AP) -- Troy Aikman's passing days didn't end when he retired from the Dallas Cowboys.

The Hall of Fame quarterback says he's passed his two final college courses and will graduate in June from UCLA -- 20 years after he left for the NFL.

The Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday that Aikman is getting a bachelor's degree in sociology and will participate in UCLA's graduation ceremonies.

The 42-year-old Fox Sports broadcaster says he's "finally taking care of unfinished business."

Aikman says he promised his mother, when he left school just two courses shy of a degree, that he would return and finish.

Aikman's final two courses included a class on race and ethnicity, and another on aging.  He earned an "A" for both.

Aikman grew up in Henryetta, Oklahoma.
