The program exposes students to various technological resources and learning experiences that instill confidence and motivation to continue their education.

Not all students who earn AA or AS degrees immediately transfer to complete their last two years of college; however, there are other reasons to earn an AA or AS degree.

  • You can include a recognized degree on your resume or job applications, which might distinguish you from other applicants. A completed degree tells prospective employers that you are motivated and have high standard for yourself. This often translates into a strong work ethic.
