Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS) and Certificates of Achievement
The two-year AAS degree provides career skills to enable students to enter the job market after graduation, retrain in a new career, or upgrade employment skills. Occupational courses are designed to meet these needs instead of transferring to four-year institutions; however, many four-year institutions accept some of these courses. Check with the other college or university if planning to transfer these courses.
Occupational training is available in fewer than two years through our certificate programs. Certificates of Achievement are awarded for several types of training outlined in the next section of this catalog. Certificate programs vary in length from one to three academic terms.
