The Associate of Applied Science Degree programs provide day and evening educational opportunities to assist individuals preparing for or advancing in a particular occupation or field. These two-year career degree programs typically require 60-70 total credits to complete with 70% of those credits reflecting technical study course work and the remaining 30% in general education. These degrees can be successfully completed within approximately two years for full-time students and will vary for students pursuing on a part-time schedule.
Many of the general education courses and some occupational credits earned in an applied associate degree program may transfer to a two- or four-year institution of higher education.
