Completing an Associate's Degree in Two Years

The number of credit hours that a student must carry in order to complete a program within a two-year period will vary depending upon his or her academic program. Consult the Catalog program description for the variation in credits required by each program. Students who elect to pursue a minimum full-time load (12 credits) each semester cannot graduate in two years unless they complete a significant number of credits during summer sessions. If students must take developmental courses, it will take more than two years to complete a degree. Students are encouraged to review all this information with their academic advisor and to discuss the option that presents the strongest opportunity for academic success.
