Types of Credentials

Below is a listing of the credential types awarded at Delgado Community College. 

Associate Degree

The Associate (non-designated) degree is awarded in programs designed to prepare students for immediate employment or career entry, but which also may serve as preparatory education for transfer to a related baccalaureate program.

Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.)

These degrees allow the recipient to transfer with advanced standing to a four-year institution.

Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.)

These are awarded in vocational and technical areas. Although some courses taken to fulfill requirements for this degree may be accepted by senior institutions, this degree is normally considered to be a terminal degree.

Associate of General Studies (A.G.S.)

These are awarded upon completion of a highly flexible program designed by the student in consultation with an advisor. Depending upon the courses chosen, the degree may be either college parallel or terminal.  This degree may be designed with a concentration in almost any discipline or pre-professional studies. 

Technical Diploma (T.D.)

This is an applied, technical program strictly limited to community and technical colleges.

Certificate of Applied Science (C.A.S.)

This is awarded upon completion of a course of study designed to prepare students for immediate employment or career entry.

Certificate of General Studies (C.G.S.)

This is designed to provide students with a broad foundation of fundamental academic courses. It offers students the opportunity to increase readiness for collegiate study while exploring career pathways. It allows students who intend to transfer to senior colleges the opportunity to choose courses that meet the admission requirements of the receiving institution.

Certificate of Technical Studies (C.T.S.)

This is awarded upon completion of a course of study designed to prepare students for immediate employment or career entry.

Post-Associate Certificate (P.A.C.)

An academic or technical offering that is earned after a student has already completed a recognized associate's degree, usually for additional professional or technical certification.
