Academic Career Education Programs
Many educational programs offered at Delta College are designed to prepare you for immediate employment in the job market. The career education curricula provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge required for entry-level positions in career fields. In addition, most programs are diversified sufficiently to create some social and economic awareness. Attending full-time, you can complete most Certificate programs in one year and the majority of Associate degree programs in two years.
Most career education programs are not specifically designed for transfer purposes to Baccalaureate degree-granting institutions. Transfer of all credits earned should not be expected.
In some programs, credits earned in career education programs may be transferable into a Baccalaureate degree program at a four-year college or university; however, these programs are not designed specifically to parallel the first two years of university study. You should consult with your Delta counselor and the Admissions Office of the college or university into which you wish to transfer.
