How to Use the Catalog
Roadmaps are useful tools in navigating a journey. We recommend that you use this Catalog as the roadmap on the journey through your academic program and college experiences. In this Catalog, you will find detailed descriptions of each of our associate’s degree, academic and proficiency certificate programs.
