Local Community Colleges
Community colleges offer two-year degrees and certificate programs. The Associate Degree may be obtained by the completion of all required courses for a major (from 18 to 30 plus units), fulfill general education requirements, satisfy competencies, and sufficient electives to meet a minimum total of 60 units. Degrees are designated by "A.A." for Associate in Arts and "A.S." for Associate in Science. Also a Career Certificate (18 units or more) or a Certificate of Completion (17.5 units or less) is offered to students completing program requirements. Our local community colleges also offer transfer agreements that can guarantee admission to most CSU and UC schools.
