Short Term Certificate (.STC) DESCRIPTIONS
University parallel programs (A.A. & A.S.) are designed specifically for transfer to a four-year institution. Career programs (A.A.S.) prepare students to enter a particular job or vocational area. They may or may not transfer to a four-year institution. It is recommended that students pursuing an A.A.S. discuss goals with an academic advisor. Individualized degree (A.I.S. & A.T.S.) programs are designed for special interest, often combining multiple degree programs. Certificate programs (.CRT & .STC) are academic programs of study designed to prepare students for a particular career area, but not at the level required for an associate degree. There are general certificate programs and short term technical certificates. The technical certificates are much more industry focused and designed for workforce preparation.
