The Apprenticeship Studies program provides an accelerated path to an Associate in Applied Science degree for students who have already completed an approved apprenticeship program. Upon submitting documentation of completion of a national or state approved apprentice curriculum, we can award up to 40 credit hours toward this degree. Only an additional 20 credit hours of coursework need be completed with the college to earn your degree (about seven classes).
