    The Smartest Start To Your Four-Year Degree

    Prepare for a successful career with the general knowledge and skills of an associate's degree. Program courses equal those found in the first two years of four-year colleges and universities, fulfill many bachelor’s degree general education requirements, and can apply to a specific major’s degree requirements. Transfer individual courses or an entire degree. By completing an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree, you'll have the benefit of a degree-to-degree transfer where universities grant junior status and waive general degree requirements, regardless of specific liberal arts courses taken at Nicolet.
