    Associate of Science

    The Associate of Science (AS) degree is designed to prepare students for transfer with advanced standing to 4-year colleges or universities. These programs are for students who plan to major in a science related discipline. Students are responsible for becoming acquainted with the program and degree requirements of the institution to which they expect to transfer and should work with their advisor to select the most appropriate courses. 

    Associate of General Studies

    The Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and greater philosophical appreciation for lifelong learning.  Although many of the courses students may complete may be considered general education transfer courses, the degree itself is not intended to be a full transfer degree into a four-year university program. 

    Associate of Applied Science

    The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree is designed to prepare students for entry into a specific occupation or closely related cluster of occupations. The objective of the AAS degree is to enhance employment opportunities.  

    Vocational Certificate

    Vocational Certificates prepare students for entry-level positions in career and technology jobs. Certificates typically recognize completion of a course of study based on a specific field.
