Degrees & Certificate Programs

Transfer Programs

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 to transfer to a four-year college or university. These degrees provide students with the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) for general education. Students should work closely with an academic advisor to select courses needed for their intended major at their next institution.

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

Occupational and Technology Associate Degrees

Associate in Applied Science Degrees

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. Students considering the AAS degree who may wish to transfer should see an advisor.

Occupational and Technology Certificates

Certificate Programs

Bay College offers certificate programs in a number of subject areas that can be completed in one year of full-time enrollment. A certificate program is designed to develop a particular set of employment skills, and 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.
