Can't decide on a program of study?
What's the difference between Pre-major/Transfer and Career/Technical
Community college programs serve two basic student populations: students planning
to transfer to a four-year institution, and students looking for short-term job
training or retraining.
Pre-major programs meet the needs of transfer students,
who select from over 40 pre-majors.
In consultation with an faculty academic consultant, each student designs a program that meets
the requirements of either the Associate of Arts
degree or the Associate of Science Transfer Degree
and the requirements of the transfer four-year institution.
Career/Technical programs are designed primarily
for short-term job training or retraining. Most of these courses are also transferable;
however, the programs may not meet all the requirements of four-year institutions
offering degrees in the same major. All students planning to transfer to a four-year
institution should meet with an faculty academic consultant to ensure all requirements are met.
Associate of Applied Science degrees
are awarded upon completion of approximately
six quarters. Certificate programs
require as little as three quarters of classes.
Articulation and Direct Transfer Agreements
Some programs are designed to guarantee transfer to
specific institutions, especially within Washington State. Successful completion of the
Interior Design - Transfer Track program
articulates with the Washington State University's Interior Design degree program.
