Degrees & Certificates

Colby Community College grants four degrees (Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of General Studies and Associate of Applied Science) and certificate programs.

The intent of the Associate of Arts Degree and Associate of Science Degree is to enable students to satisfy freshman and sophomore level program requirements for the Bachelor of Art and the Bachelor of Science degrees offered by state universities. The Associate of Applied Science Degree is intended to prepare students for employment upon satisfactory completion of the degree. The Associate of General Studies Degree is intended to recognize the attainment of a broad general education at the lower division level. Neither the Associate of Applied Science Degree nor the Associate of General Studies Degree was developed with transfer as a primary in consideration; however, part of the credit may be transferred to state universities on a case-by-case basis.

Courses designated as developmental (Colby course numbers below 100) do not count toward degree requirements. Courses that are repeated only count one time to meet degree requirements. A maximum of three credit hours from workshops will count toward graduation. Colby Community College has designated certain courses that fulfill degree requirements as General Education courses. These are listed on pages 15-16.
