Degree Offerings



Degrees & Formal Awards

WNCC offers two-year programs of study leading to one of five associate degrees:

  • Associate of Arts (AA)
  • Associate of Science (AS)
  • Associate Degree of Nursing (AD-N)
  • Associate of Fine Arts (AFA)
  • Associate of Applied Science (AAS)

Short-term professional skill awards, one-year certificates, two-year certificates, and diploma options are available in selected fields.

Associate Degrees

Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate Degree of Nursing, and Associate of Fine Arts degrees prepare students for careers and/or advanced study at a four-year college or university.

The Associate of Applied Science degree prepares students primarily for careers in technical and vocational areas: applied technologies, business, and health and social sciences. In most instances, students are also able to transfer part, and in some cases all, of an AAS program to a bachelor’s degree-granting institution.

With all associate degrees, if a student is planning on transferring to a bachelor-granting college or university, it is important for students to work closely with their individual faculty advisors.

  1. All degrees require a minimum of 60 credits.
  2. Courses numbered below the 1000-level do not count as part of the total credits for Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate Degree of Nursing, and Associate of Fine Arts degrees.
  3. Courses numbered below the 1000-level do not count as part of the total credits for the Associate of Applied Science.
  4. While the AAS and AD-N degrees are designated as being earned in a specific program, the AA, AS, and AFA degrees are generalist in nature and not awarded “in” a field.

Students are expected to successfully complete all graduation requirements as stated in the catalog in effect during the term of graduation, or from the College Catalog in effect at the time of initial entry if the student is continuously enrolled. Under certain unusual circumstances, students may appeal for an exception to the Chief Academic Officer. This appeal must be made prior to the start of the term in which graduation is expected to occur.

Diploma

  1. Diplomas require a minimum of 24-48 credits of courses from a suggested curriculum list appearing in the College Catalog. In addition to coursework specific to an area of study, students are required to take some coursework outside the student’s vocational field, including but not limited to written communication, mathematics, and an elective from personal development, the social or lab sciences, or oral communication.
  2. Demonstration of competency in writing and mathematics by assessment (ACCUPLACER®) or by passing the appropriate quantitative reasoning (MATH -1020 , MATH-1010 , or BSAD-1500 ) and written communication (BSAD-1210 , ENGL-1000 , or ENGL-1010 ) courses is required.
  3. Courses numbered below the 1000-level do not count as part of the total credits.

Certificate

  1. Certificates require completion of 16-23 credits of required courses from a curriculum list in the College Catalog.
  2. Courses numbered below the 1000-level do not count as part of the total credits.
