Florida Community College offers three kinds of college credit
degrees for degree seeking students — the associate in
arts (A.A.), the associate in science (A.S.) and associate in
applied science (A.A.S.). Students who want to transfer to a
four-year college or university pursue an A.A. degree. Students
who want to obtain a degree in a specified area of expertise
pursue an A.S. or A.A.S. degree. Non-degree seeking students
are not trying to earn a degree. They may be taking classes for
work advancement, to transfer credit back to another college
or for personal enrichment.
