Many TCC career studies certificates give you credits that apply to the associate degree. If you earn a career studies certificate, you can apply those credits toward the associate degree.
A few examples:
- Earn the Career Studies Certificate in Automotive Engine Performance and apply those 25 credits to the 68-credit Associate of Applied Science in Automotive Technology.
- Earn the Certificate in Information Systems Technology and apply those 34 credits to the 66-credit Associate of Applied Science in Information Systems Technology.
- Earn the Career Studies Certificate in Mechatronics and apply those 29 credits to the 67-credit Associate of Applied Science in Mechatronics.
In addition, many of our programs prepare you for industry exams that will provide career-boosting industry credentials.
