At AACC, we offer over 40 associate degrees in fields ranging from Business Administration to Architecture, Human Services to Radiologic Technology. Some are designed primarily to prepare students for transferring to four-year institutions. Others, like our Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees, are career-focused programs that prepare you for immediate employment or train you for specific skills. 


Transfer to a Four-Year Institution

Some even lead to industry-recognized professional certifications. Certificates can typically be earned in 12-18 months, while letters of recognition can be earned in 12 months or less.
