Degrees Offered & Transfer

Carl Albert State College offers two year associates degrees in art, science, and applied science, as well as offering several certificate programs.

The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees are university parallel degree programs and typically are completed after 62 credit hours and 2.00 GPA.  Students completing AA or AS degrees are intended to transfer to four-year institutions to continue their educations in their chosen fields of study.

The Associate of Applied Science degrees provide students the option to either end their college study and enter the workforce at completion of the two-year degree, or increasingly to transfer that degree and pursue higher, more specialized degrees.
