Academic Program Options What educational options are available at IVCC? Okay, now that you know how to get started here at IVCC, what about academic program options? At IVCC, you can choose from five different degrees and a variety of certificate programs. If you want to transfer to a four-year college or university, you will pursue either an Associate in Arts (A. A.) degree, an Associate in Science (A. S.) degree, or an Associate in Engineering Science (A. E. S.) degree. These three degrees are called transfer degrees. If you want to learn a professional skill that will result in immediate employment after IVCC, you will pursue either an Associate of Applied Science (A. A. S.) degree or a certificate program. Another degree option available to you is the Associate in General Studies (A. G. S.) degree. This degree is individualized to meet the needs and interests of the student. It allows for the combination of both transfer and career courses. While not intended to be a transfer degree, the A. G. S. degree recognizes completion of two years of college. back | home | next
