Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree

Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees are generally 60 to 72 credits in length and may be awarded for successful completion of a program primarily intended for employment. A.A.S. degrees are typically not designed for transfer.

This degree provides excellent preparation for the student planning immediate job entry at the end of two years.

This degree requires a combination of technical and general education classes numbered 100 and above. General education classes must be included in the degree from at least three of the ten goal areas of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC).  

The MnTC courses within the A.A.S. degree must transfer to any Minnesota State college or university.  

Several A.A.S. degree programs are articulated with Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degrees.  

In these cases, the A.A.S. degree must transfer pursuant to the terms and conditions of the articulation agreement, and the MnTC courses within the A.A.S. degree must transfer to any Minnesota State college or university.  

See your faculty advisor or a college counselor for additional information.
