Carl Albert State College offers two year associates degrees in art, science, and applied science areas. The Associate of Art and Associate of Science are university parallel degree programs and typically are completed after 62 credit hours and 2.00 GPA. The Associate of Applied Science are considered "terminal" degrees in that students end their college study and enter the workforce at completion of the two-year degree.
Certificate programs are terminal programs that require a limited number of credit hours for completion. Certificates demonstrate a level of proficiency attained by the student in a particular subject area.
