Applied Technology by the Numbers
Successful Outcomes Rate
From Dr. Deken: A large percentage of the students who complete our AAS program stay on to complete a BS program. By working with an advisor, you can choose classes in the AAS that seamlessly transition into one of our many BS programs. For students not going onto a 4-year degree, many are sought after in the workforce (I don’t have exact data on it though).
You can finish the program in as little as five semesters with Southeast Online’s year round-classes.
