The common goal of all Associate of Applied Science degrees and occupational certificate programs is to prepare students for employment in specific occupations. The programs for the degrees consist of major courses as well as related general education courses. While many of these courses may transfer to a four-year College or university, the programs themselves do not have transferability as their primary goal. Students are encouraged to discuss career goals and educational objectives with an Advisor prior to enrolling in these programs. Courses numbered below 100 cannot be used to satisfy elective requirements for A.A.S. degrees.
