What is an AAS-T Degree?

An Associates of Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T) degree builds on the technical courses required for job preparation by including a college-level general education component.

The distinguishing characteristic of the AAS-T degree is a minimum 20 credits of general education drawn from the same list as those taken by students completing direct transfer associate’s degrees.

Important Considerations Regarding AAS-T Degrees

  • AAS-T degrees are designed for immediate employment and as preparation for applied bachelor of science degrees
  • AAS-T degrees are transferrable only when a receiving college or university has a special agreement in place with the specific college
  • AAS-T degrees are not accepted in transfer in preparation for bachelor of arts or bachelor of science programs.
