Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees are designed for students who plan to attend a senior institution for further study, but they are also suitable for anyone wishing to continue their academic education beyond the high school level. The degrees are offered in any of several academic concentrations. Also, an Associate in Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.), or Short-Term Certificates can be earned for completing certain requirements in certain career technical programs.
Students planning to transfer to a public senior institution in the State of Alabama should obtain and follow a transfer guide, which is available from the Articulation and General Studies Committee's STARS web site.

Today, technology has changed such that it allows learners to receive an education anytime, anywhere, through technology media such as the internet, televised instruction and video. Most on-line courses are offered via asynchronous communication which basically means that the information is not offered at the same time the student is trying to access it, nor are other learners accessing it at the same time. We offer four distance education course formats: Hybrid, On-line, Telecourse, and CD/DVD.
