Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degrees and Associate in Science (A.S.) Degrees
We offer more than 60 programs of study through our Associate in Arts (A.A.) and Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees.
Associate in Arts
If you’re planning on getting a bachelor’s degree, then the A.A. degree is for you. It’s equivalent to the first two years at a state university. The only difference? At about half the cost, it’s a much more affordable way to start out. You’ll complete all of your general education requirements for the bachelor’s and can take electives geared toward a specific major. And when you've finished your A.A. at Valencia College, you'll be prepared to stay here for your bachelor's degree or transfer to a four-year university as a junior.
Associate in Science
Our Associate in Science (A.S.) degree programs help you gain the skills you need for an exciting career and a well-paying job in as few as two years. With one of our A.S. Degrees, you have two options: you can enter directly into a high-skill, high-wage profession upon graduation, or transfer to a Bachelor’s Degree offered at Valencia College or another state college in Florida.
