GENERAL TECHNOLOGY Associate of Applied Science The Associates of Applied Science degree in General Technology enables a student working with an advisor to design an individualized program of study to fulfill a unique or multi-skill career goal that cannot be met through the completion of any single technology program offered by the College. This is accomplished by selecting courses in one Technical Major of a minimum of 24 semester credits; a 15-semester credit General Academic Core; and a minimum of 15 semester credits (a minimum of 12 SCH in a specific skills area) of Technical/Support courses to complete a total of 60+ college credit hours. Half of those credits can be earned by documenting in a portfolio what you have learned by experience. College, post-secondary technical school, and military - ACE approved credits earned previously, may also count toward the General Technology program. In order to be considered for admission to this program, the student must complete a proposed program of study with their technical advisor.
