The Associate in Arts, Associate in Fine Arts, and Associate in Science degree programs are designed for persons who are planning to transfer to four-year colleges or universities. These programs provide opportunities to complete the first two years of general college courses with some degree of specialization.

Program electives may be selected from a variety of courses. Selection should be based upon the requirements of the four-year institution to which the student plans to transfer.

* Program also available at the Watauga Campus

The Associate in Applied Science degree programs are designed to prepare persons for technician-level occupations. More emphasis is given to theory than in diploma courses. Also, roughly one-half of the course requirements are in general education and the sciences underlying the particular occupational area. A core of general competencies in communication, computation, the use of technology, global awareness/diversity, and critical thinking must be met by all graduates of associate degree programs. These requirements are met through a variety of student learning outcomes identified in the General Education Assessment Plan and documented through the General Education Assessment Report issued annually and posted on the CCC&TI Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research webpage.
