Associate of Arts & Science Degrees
These degrees are designed to allow for the transfer of credits earned at Central Texas College to the bachelor degree requirements at most four-year public colleges and universities. Completion of the 42 semester hours of
core curriculum in each degree guarantees transferability of the minimum 42 semester credit hours of state-mandated core curricula toward the general education requirements of a bachelor’s degree program at state supported colleges and universities in Texas.

Associate of Applied Science Degrees & Certificates
Did you know many of the highest demand occupations DO NOT require a four-year degree?
Career and Technology Education is a series of courses, combined with hands-on training, that prepare students for careers.
Two-year programs lead to an Associate of Applied Science degree. Certificates of completion can be completed in less than two years.
Certificate programs are shorter-term and more field-of-study-focused programs. Often, they can be used as building blocks to gain employment while continuing work toward a degree.
