Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.)

An Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree is an award for the satisfactory completion of a prescribed curriculum of 60 semester credit hours or more intended to prepare individuals for employment in a specific field. It also serves those persons already employed in the field who desire to improve their competencies and achieve an associate's degree. A number of the AAS degrees have been articulated and/or capstoned with four-year institutions for completion of a Bachelor's degree.

Capstone Options

Some career and technical education programs and/or courses transfer to senior institutions although they are not designed specifically for transfer. Southern Illinois University at Carbondale offers, for example, the Capstone Option allowing students who have earned two-year occupational degrees the option of pursuing a bachelor's degree without losing credits already earned. Students planning to transfer should consult a Richland counselor or advisor for additional information.
