Associate Degrees

Building on your Academic Success

Associate degrees typically require 60-62 credits. Once a student earns an Associate degree, the student can transfer to one of several university partners at University Center Gaylord to earn a Bachelor degree.

Students should meet with an academic advisor throughout their course work to assure that they are meeting requirements for both the Associate and Bachelor degrees. All University Center partners work closely together to assure a smooth transfer of credits earned.

Kirtland Gaylord M-TEC offer complete Associate degree programs through the University Center Gaylord.
