    The AA (General Pathway) degree is being offered to new students as part of a strategy to create streamlined Transfer Pathways in the Division of Arts & Sciences. Students who intend to earn four-year degrees can save up to 75 percent by completing the first two years at A-B Tech. 

    The AAS in Business Administration is one of A-B Tech’s most sought-after degrees, but many business students work full-time and require the flexibility to juggle college and work.

    The Fire Protection Technology Degree is offered in a 100% online format.  Distance learning allows the degree to be completed around the student’s personal schedule without the burden and extra expense of being at a physical location.

    Fully online certificates include:
