What is an A.A.S. Degree? How can it help me?
Getting your A.A.S. degree means potentially increasing the number of job opportunities available to you, and more importantly, increasing the amount of pay you may receive compared to just getting your diploma.
Does an A.A.S. Degree pay more money in the job market?
The median weekly wages for those with an associate degree is about 18% higher than that of high school graduates. Over the length of a career, that can really add up.
How long does it take to complete my degree?
It takes about 2 years to complete you A.A.S. degree compared to a diploma program, which is usually about 15 months.
Is getting my degree worth it?
The current economy in Hawaii favors workers with some training beyond just a high school diploma. The share of good jobs for people with an associate degrees has been rising steadily over the past 25 years.
