Transfer Programs

About the Associate in Arts and Associate in Science Transfer Degrees

The Associate in Arts (AA) and Associate in Science (AS) Transfer Degrees are designed for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university. In addition to preparation for transfer, these degrees provide students with the Michigan Transfer Agreement for general education. Students should work closely with an academic advisor to select courses needed for their intended major at the four-year university they plan to attend.

A student may choose to work toward and receive the AA or AS degree without transferring to another institution.

Associate degrees representing the first two years of a four-year program have been designed for successful transfer to senior colleges and universities. Transfer guides are available on university websites for the following interest areas. Students will be assigned an academic advisor based on these interest areas. Students will not earn a degree in an interest area; rather they will earn the corresponding Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree.

Occupational and Technology Programs

About the Associate in Applied Science Degree

The Associate in Applied Science Degree combines general education with coursework designed to prepare students for immediate entry into the workforce upon graduation. Bay College’s approved General Education Model ensures that the curriculum of all occupational programs has a balance of technical, vocational, and liberal arts study courses.

Although some students pursuing the AAS degree may transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree, many AAS courses are not granted transfer equivalency credit at Michigan universities. Students considering the AAS degree who may wish to transfer should see an advisor.

Occupational and Technology Certificate Programs

About the Certificate Programs

Bay College offers certificate programs in a number of subject areas. Most certificate programs can be completed in one year of full-time enrollment. A certificate program is designed to develop a particular set of employment skills, and it can build toward a degree. Please note that the “Certificate” awarded is not the same as a licensing exam or certification awarded by a national or regional accrediting association, although some programs prepare you to take licensing exams or complete certification processes.
