Transfer Options for Associate in Applied Science Degrees

Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degrees are primarily designed to prepare students for a particular field of work rather than for use in transferring to a four-year institution. However, some universities do provide significantly more transfer credit for certain MCC AAS degrees than is normally granted. These institutions are listed below. In many cases, students have just two years left to complete after finishing their AAS degree. Students should consult with MCC academic advisors and transfer counselors as well as staff at their transfer university for details on exactly how much credit will transfer for a particular AAS program.
