College Definitions: The Basics Certificate: An award for completion of a program designed for less than one year (15 semester credit hours or less). It is awarded to students demonstrating mastery of skills and is not normally part of other programs leading to a technical certificate or associate degree. Associate Degree a degree granted upon completion of a program that requires at least two, but fewer than four, academic years of postsecondary education. Bachelor’s Degree a degree granted upon completion of a program that requires four to five years of full-time college work and carries the title of bachelor.
College Definitions Four-year colleges and universities: Offer bachelor's degrees in many fields of study. Many also offer graduate programs Public colleges and universities are subsidized by tax money from the state in which they are located and are generally less expensive than private colleges. However, the low rates are normally available only to residents of the state. Out-of-state students usually pay higher rates. They also may have limited financial aid funds for students. Private colleges, on the other hand, are funded through endowments, tuition, and donations. The cost of attending a private college is usually higher than a public university. But don't rule private school out only because of cost! Private colleges often offer financial aid options that make their cost feasible.
College Definitions Continued…. Community & Junior Colleges: Community and junior colleges generally offer 2-year associate degree programs The courses usually transfer to 4-year colleges Community colleges offer specialized job training in certain areas, much like vocational schools. They're affordable and prepare students to enter the work force immediately following graduation.
