Choosing Your Programs of Study

You can explore academic programs by career interest. Earn an Occupational Certificate or an Associate Degree and move right into employment or transfer courses to a college or university. For more information, make an appointment with a Glen Oaks advisor and map out your future.

Selecting Transfer or Non-Transfer Degrees

The Associate of General Studies, Associate of Arts, Associate of Business, Associate of Science and Associate of Visual Arts degrees are typically pursued when transfer to a 4-year institution is likely. The college recommends regular advising appointments to assure the best possible transfer to a 4-year school. Completion of general education courses at Glen Oaks in these five degrees may qualify the student for the Michigan Transfer Agreement (pg. 38). 

Those who seek an Associate of Applied Science in Business, Associate of Applied Science in Technology, or an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing or Allied Health generally move directly into the workplace upon graduation. Many classes taken in these programs will transfer and the MA agreement may be available. All associate degrees, except the AASN, are flexible and provide for a wide range of classroom experience. It is recommended that students meet with an advisor to schedule classes that will pertain to their chosen degree.
