In addition to the subjects listed above, there are many other possible educational directions you may pursue after achieving your educational goals at Olympic college.
For example, all Associate in Applied Science – Transfer (AAS-T) degrees are designed to transfer to at least one specific institution. Also, some colleges will accept professionaltechnical degrees in transfer, although usually with some limitations such as a higher GPA or minimum number of fully transferable credits.
The Evergreen State College accepts the following Professional-Technical Degrees either as direct technical transfer or upside down degrees:
- Accounting Technology ATA
- Business Management ATA
- Chemical Dependency Counseling ATA
- Early Childhood Education AAS-T
- Information Systems Specialist AAS-T
- Leadership and Occupational Studies AAS-T
- Medical Assisting AAS-T
- Associate Degree—Nursing and Transition to ADN ATA
- Organizational Leadership & Resource Management AAS-T
- Physical Therapist Assistant AAS
Be sure to check with an advisor at your future college before finalizing your educational plan to make sure you do not end up retaking courses. If you plan to continue your education after completing a professionaltechnical degree (Associate in Technical Arts or Associate in Applied Science), it is generally better to select courses which are generally accepted in transfer whenever possible. For example, choose ENGL& 101, English Composition I, rather than BSTEC 150, Business English; and MATH&107, Math in Society, rather than BMGMT 140, Business and Personal Math. See the Associate in Arts degree for more information on which courses are fully transferable. Even if a given degree is not considered transferable, courses will be evaluated individually by the receiving program.
