What is the difference between these programs?
For college students who begin their studies at a community college, A.A. and A.S. programs should transfer in full, with the student bearing some responsibility to make elective choices at the community college that are consistent with the intended major and the requirements of the four-year college or university. The A.A.S. degree prepares students for immediate employment after graduation, although many students who pursue this degree also transfer successfully.

Certificate programs are designed to equip students with skills for immediate employment in a wide range of job possibilities. Certificates of Proficiency require 30 or more credits, while Certificates of Completion require a fewer number of credits. In general, credits earned through a Certificate program may later be applied to an associate degree in a related field or in general education.
