Technical Studies

Do you have prior training that you would like college credit for? If so, this program can get you started! Our program is designed for students who have received technical training in a corporate, industrial, community, governmental or military environment. Up to 24 credits may be awarded for that prior training upon American Council on Education (ACE) review. Students will then proceed to earn additional credits for completion of their degree.

Our Technical Studies program prepares students for advanced studies or specialization at a 4-year institution. Students who obtain an Associate’s Degree may pursue careers such as, but not limited to, technical specialist, technical support and technical analyst.
