An Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is designed to prepare students for immediate entry into the workforce but may be fully or partially transferable to four-year programs. An Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree, and an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree, are general transfer degrees indicating that the student has completed their Core 2.0 and electives that can be used towards a bachelor's degree.
