The AAS degree in Applied Technology requires the completion of at least 60 semester hours. Credits from area vocational schools that apply to the degree vary in number according to the certificate program offered by the area vocational school. A maximum of 45 certificate credits from a CCCS-approved CTE program may be applied toward the Applied Technology degree. Students must complete at least 15 credit hours at CCA from the approved General Education course list. Students whose certificate program taken at the area vocational school that requires fewer than 45 hours need to complete additional courses at CCA to meet the 60 credits required for the degree and should consult their Pathways Advisor for more information.
