The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree is awarded when you complete a minimum of 60 credit hours of classes, including the specified general education requirements for the degree, with a grade-point average of at least 2.0. These AAS degrees lead directly to a career and may or may not transfer to a bachelor's degree. Working with advisors from both HCC and your desired university will ensure that each course you take will move you towards your bachelor's degree if you want to transfer your college credits.
HCC offers AAS degrees in a variety of areas, from Agriculture to Office Systems Technology and including Nursing. A General Occupational Technology (GOTS) degree is also available, which incorporates technical classes with general education classes to achieve the required 60 credit hours.
