Associate of Science

The Associate of Science degree requires completion of a minimum of 60 credit hours. Although students often have the option of entering a career field upon completion of the Associate of Science, this degree plan is primarily designed to provide the first two years of coursework to prepare students for transfer into a related upper-division baccalaureate degree program. The Associate of Science degree is the appropriate degree plan for students who major in fields with more stringent mathematics and mathematics-based science requirements.


  • “I think a lot of us figured we would come to Yavapai, take some classes, and get our degree. For some of us that journey was pretty smooth, for others it was long and rocky. For all of us, it took persistence and dedication, but this was never supposed to be the final destination. It shouldn't, it won't end here.”

    -- Alison Barzelay
