General Education courses are an important component of the AAS degree option. Whereas completion of the vocational training requirements demonstrates competency in the area of specialty, completion of the General Education requirements demonstrates a competence in oral and written communications, computations and human relations in the workplace. General Education requirements vary for each degree program as described in the degrees section. General Education credits may be transferred to other colleges within guidelines established by the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.
