Graduating with Multiple Certificates or Degrees

adopted: Oct-1993
last revised: Jun-2006

Richland students may work toward completion of more than one program of study if they so desire.

Students may receive all certificates and AAS degrees for which they have completed the requirements.

In order to receive a second transfer-oriented associate’s degree, a student must:

  • Complete all graduation requirements for the second degree; and
  • Complete at least an additional 10 hours of applicable credit beyond the first degree.

A separate “Application for Graduation” must be submitted for each certificate or associate's degree.

A student may earn only one Associate in Arts (AA) degree, one Associate in Science (AS) degree, one Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) degree, and one Associate in Engineering Science (AES) degree.
