Requirements for more than one Associate Degree

Students may earn either an associate in science (A.S.) or associate in arts (A.A.) degree, but not both. However, students may earn an associate in science and an associate in engineering science (A.E.S) degree.

Students may earn an associate in applied science degree (A.A.S.) and transfer degree (A.A., A.S. or A.E.S. degree), if they meet the specific curriculum requirements for the A.A.S. degree and complete all the general and specific requirements for the A.A., A.S. or A.E.S. degree as outlined in the section of the catalog for college transfer degree requirements. It is important that students meet with their advisor or counselor because not all courses required in an associate in applied science program are intended for or accepted as transfer credit to senior institutions.

In order for students to be eligible for more than one degree, other than the combination of associate in science and associate in engineering science degrees, they must satisfactorily complete an additional sixteen (16) semester hours at Lake Land College. All specific course requirements for the second degree must be satisfied and at least 16 semester hours not applicable to meet the minimum requirements for the first degree must be earned.

Students who seek a second degree from Lake Land College are subject to published deadlines to file an intent to graduate form.

Required of All Students in Certificate Programs

Students will be eligible for graduation when they have met all of the following requirements:

  1. Met all College admissions requirements.

  2. Fulfilled all general and specific requirements in one of the certificate programs listed in the catalog.
