Advising Tips:

  • The Associate Degree is a wonderful option for students who cannot, either for academic or personal reasons, complete a four-year degree. It can improve employment possibilities and gives the student a sense of accomplishment.

  • Students can request a "what-if" degree audit for the Associate Degree by logging into MyBlugold CampS and using the degree audit feature.
