The Associate of Technical Studies (ATS) enables students to combine certifications (state, national, vendor), earned through an educational entity or a place of employment, with general education courses to meet the associate degree requirements.
Anyone is eligible to pursue the ATS degree if they have received significant certifications for educational and/or workplace training. Students can earn up to 30 technical credits towards the ATS based on the number of eligible certifications they hold.
