With the university transfer option, you can complete most of your general education coursework at the Maricopa Community Colleges and have guaranteed acceptance to one of our over 40 university and college partners to complete your Bachelor degree.

There are other Associate of Applied Science degrees that have been designed to provide seamless transfer into a bachelor program, but acceptance is not guaranteed. For more information, see the Get an Associate Degree option below.

The award you are looking at is not offered at this college. Please visit Maricopa Community Colleges' Field of Interest page to view similar offerings at our other colleges.

A Certificate prepares you for entry-level work in your chosen field and requires fewer classes than the Associate degree or university transfer options. There are several types of certificates available, including career, trade, and academic certificates.

Credits earned in a certificate program can often be used toward an Associate degree. For more information, speak with an advisor.
