ASSOCIATE OF APPLIED SCIENCE DEGREE

The Associate of Applied Science degree (AAS) is awarded upon
completion of a prescribed program of study designed to prepare
students to enter and compete in the job market. Eighteen credit
hours must be earned in residency at Collin College.
AAS curricula 
enable the graduate to enter an occupation with marketable skills,
an acceptable level of technical competency, and the ability to
communicate effectively. In addition, an AAS degree helps
prepare students for life-long learning.



AAS Degree Plan Requirements

AAS degrees require a minimum of 60 credit hours with at least half
of the coursework in a common technical specialty area and a
minimum of 15 credit hours of general education selected by the
faculty to complement the technical courses in the area of study.
Some programs limit the general education options that may be used
to meet the requirements for the specific AAS degree.  If options are
listed in the degree plan, refer to the AAS General Education Options
Table to view the course choices available.
