If your goal is to get a transferable, skills-based degree, you’re in the right place. Any certificate can be combined with general education courses to create your AS degree.
Seeking to expand your job-related skills to broaden career options? Strengthen your resume by including two certificates in your degree. Or, discover new interests by choosing one certificate and exploring elective credits. Are you a Pathway student interested in attending Ensign College? Those earned credits can be transferred to your AS degree as electives.
Whichever option you choose, you’ll graduate with the technical, critical thinking and interpersonal skills that employers look for, so you can secure a career and excel.
Interested in continuing your education after you graduate? No problem. Your regionally-accredited AS degree, which includes the credits from your selected certificate(s), can be transferred to a 4-year institution.
