Career and Technical Awards
Follow the general education requirements to complete a career and technical award. In addition to the career and technical courses you will take at least 15 general education credits to earn an Associate of Applied Science. Certificates require fewer general education credits, if any. Some courses specified for certain general education component areas may be more than 3 credit hours.
Note: Applied science degrees are primarily intended for workforce entry, not university transfer. Consult your instructional program or area before taking classes if you intend to transfer.
