How Do I Graduate From CCC?

CCC GraduatesGraduating from college can be a challenging process, but the simple answer to the question is by meeting CCC degree requirements.

Graduating with an Associates Degree

All CCC associate degrees have a general education component. Those are courses that you are required to take in order to graduate. Beyond required courses, you will have a number of elective hours. Most students use those elective hours in their major field of study for transfer to a four-year institution. If you plan to transfer to a four-year school after CCC, you will want to plan those electives wisely to make sure the courses you take will transfer and will meet those future degree requirements.

Associate in Arts Degree Requirements
This is the degree most main campus students will seek. This degree is meant to transfer to a baccalaureate degree-granting institution. The student must complete 64 semester hours with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or above.

Associate in Science Degree Requirements
This degree is typically sought by those majoring in a math or science field. This degree is meant to transfer to a baccalaureate degree granting institution. The student must complete 64 semester hours with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or above.

Associate in Applied Science Degree Requirements
This is the degree option many students utilize when enrolled in a technical program at the Coffeyville Technical Campus or Columbus Technical Campus. The degree requires completion of a technical certification program and an additional 18 hours of general education courses. Certain courses within this degree may or may not transfer to baccalaureate degree granting institutions. The student must complete 63-66 semester hours (dependent upon certificate program) with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or above.

Associate in General Studies Degree Requirements
This degree is similar to the Associate in Arts requirements except the general studies degree requires intermediate algebra instead of college algebra for the math requirement, English Composition I instead of I and II for the English requirement, and just a three hour science course instead of a five hour science course. This degree option is not recommended for students wishing to transfer to a four-year school.

Technical Certificate Programs

The College issues a Certificate of Completion for selected programs, which require less than 64 hours of credit.  Those who qualify for the Certificate of Completion are eligible to participate in the graduation ceremonies. For specific certificate programs, please check out the following links:
