Associate Degrees

Associate degrees typically take two years to complete if you go to school full time. An associate degree can provide entry to a wide variety of careers, ranging from business and biotechnology to education and engineering.

Community colleges are a good fit for students who want to continue their education close to home and at an affordable price. As a result, two-year degrees are one of the fastest-growing and most popular education programs in Indiana and nationwide.

In addition to the lower tuition prices at two-year colleges, community college students can also save money on a four-year bachelor’s degree by transferring their credits to a four-year college.

Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees are granted to students who complete two-year programs of study.

Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.)degrees are awarded to students who complete two-year technical or vocational programs. These programs often require an apprenticeship.
