Two-year degree offered by Community Colleges and some State College
s. Known for attracting students of EVERY age, EVERY race, EVERY income background and EVERY academic ability.
Some Associate Degrees are actually very useful by themselves like Nursing
, Criminal Justice
and some business fields but most are just stepping stones to get to a Bachelors degree
MANY credits actually WILL transfer to a 4-year college. But this largely depends on which college you plan on going to. Obviously a top ivy league school
or something close to that will be more selective but if your just looking for a decent/good college to finish your Bachelors Degree then you will be fine.
Johnny went to a Community College to get an Associate Degree. Now he has a decent middle class job.
Maria spent her first two years in Community College and then transferred to a 4 year college
to finish off her degree and now has half as much debt as most of her graduating class at her 4-year school with the same degree
