Selecting a Degree
One of the most important decisions you will make as a new
Aims student will be choosing your degree program. Advisors
will thoroughly explain each of the degree programs that
are offered at Aims, and will help you choose the best program
to meet your goals.
Aims offers three main programs:
- Associate of
Arts or Associate of Science (AA or AS):
these degrees are primarily for students who intend to
transfer to a 4-year school.
If you intend to transfer
to a 4-year school, advisors will need to work with
you to customize your degree to fit your future major.
Without customizing your degree in this way, you will likely
need to take additional classes at your transfer institution.
If your program allows for electives, please be aware that
only certain classes are approved
Although the AA and AS degrees
are suitable for nearly all majors, there are unique situations
in which it may be to your advantage to only take one or
two semesters of classes before transferring. Your advisor
will help you determine the most appropriate transfer plan.
- Associate of
Applied Science (AAS): these degrees are primarily
designed for students looking to gain knowledge and enhance
their skills for immediate employment after graduation.
Although most programs and classes are not transferable,
transfer options are available for students.
- Certificate: these programs are
intended for students looking to enhance specific skills
for employment. Please click on the link for more information
and a complete list of certificate programs.
