The Associate of Applied Science programs are designed primarily for students who wish to seek employment after two years of college. These programs are not designed for transfer to a senior institution. Although the general education core is transferable, senior institutions may grant elective credit for other courses in the curricula, and all are college courses. Students planning to graduate with an Associate of Applied Science Degree are required to complete the general education courses of the core curriculum for career preparation programs listed at the beginning of this section.
