General education satisfies career/technical requirements
You need at least 15 general education credits to earn an Associate of Applied Science. Certificates require fewer general education credits, if any.
- Applied science degrees are intended for workforce entry, not university transfer. Consult your instructional department or division  before taking classes you intend to transfer.
- See core curriculum requirements  for transfer degrees.
