CPCC has developed a variety of affordable, two-year degree and distance learning programs that respond to the immediate needs of the local workforce, including the areas of science, technology, engineering, math and many others.
The college offers two-year Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees and shorter-term diploma and certificate programs. Two-year degree programs are for students who are interested in completing a career-oriented program. Graduates of these programs develop marketable employment and college-level academic skills. In some cases, courses within the programs are transferable to colleges and universities. Students may reach other career goals such as updating job skills, career advancement and re-entry into the workforce. In support of these programs, the college continues to form partnerships with business and industry.
Transfer programs are for students interested in completing their general education requirements prior to transferring to a four-year institution. The programs offer courses comparable to the freshman and sophomore levels at four-year colleges and universities. Students are able to transfer a diploma or an associate degree to four-year colleges prepared with the background and skills necessary to succeed in further studies. Graduates have college-level academic skills and have successfully completed the general education core curriculum. More information is available on the Transfer Resource Center website.
