Certificate – These are academic programs of up to 30 – 32 credits that are completed in one year or less by full-time students. Certificates are specialized training for people who want to quickly complete a program that leads to a specific job. Certificates typically consist of 6 – 9 credits of General Education courses and 18 – 24 credits of core courses in the area of specialty.

Diploma – An academic program with generally 30 to 72 credits intended to provide students with skills leading directly to a specific job.

Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS) – A degree program that normally requires at least two but less than four years of full-time college work. An AAS degree consists of “applied” courses that are focused on preparing students for a particular career, on practical vocational skills. An AAS degree may or may not be designed to transfer to a BS degree program. An AAS degree typically has between 60 – 64 total credits. Of the 60 – 64 total credits, approximately 24-28 are General Education course credits and the remainder specific to the vocation or career.

Associate of Science Degree (AS) and Associate of Arts Degree (AA) – An Associate of Science (AS) and Associate of Arts (AA) are 2-year degrees. Unlike the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, which prepares you to enter a career immediately after graduation, most AS and AA degrees are transfer degrees and provide an academic foundation, but not specific career training. The AA requires more hours in Humanities/Fine Arts and Social Sciences. The AS requires more hours in Math and Lab Sciences.

Bachelor’s Degree (BS) – A degree program that normally requires at least four but not more than six years of full-time college work. Typically has between 120 – 124 total credits, with approximately 60 credits of General Education courses and 60 credits of courses in the major.
