Technical Studies, ATS
Associate of Technical Studies (230000ATSW)
The Associate of Technical Studies (ATS) provides an integrated and flexible program of study for those students whose educational objectives and interests cannot be met solely through an existing College/University formal associate degree program.
The ATS permits students to combine various courses from two or more of the College’s/University’s existing associate degree programs with other University credits, with credits earned at other postsecondary institutions, and/or with training received through other educational enterprises.
Associate of Technical Studies Options
Completion of a minimum of 30 credit hours with at least one, but no more than three, major areas of study and reflecting a reasonable array of courses within each area of study. There must be at least 30 semester credits clearly identifiable with a career objective.
Up to 30 credits of “block credit” for individuals with educational and occupational experiences not previously granted college credit. This can include training programs, professional certifications and/ or licensure in a technical field such as Robotics and Automation Technology, Building Maintenance Technology, Dental Assisting or Cosmetology.
