ARE YOU INTERESTED IN AN ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (AS) DEGREE?

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.

Get a stand-alone certificate*
Are you looking to gain marketable skills quickly, so you can get a competitive job without a 2- or 4-year degree? Ensign College offers a certificate only option, which allows you to obtain a stand-alone standard certificate in just one semester (15 credits). So you can get to work fast in the field of your choice.

*Note: While a student may choose to take all 5 courses at one time, caution is advised as each class does require significant amounts of study and project/assignment work. It is recommended you split this into at least 2 semesters.

DON'T FORGET TO PLAN YOUR COURSES

Have you laid out your course sequencing yet? It’s essential that you meet with your academic advisor first thing to ensure that you stay on track. Accumulating too many credits will not only affect your eligibility for financial aid, but also your ability to transfer to another school. So don’t wait. Set yourself up for success by mapping out your required courses from the beginning.

You can reach your academic advisor through the Student Development Center at Studentdevelopment@ensign.edu or 801-524-8151.
