GCC pathway programs are certificates that “stack” into a degree, or degrees that can potentially award a certificate midway through completion. Depending on course selection, once you earn a pathway certificate you’re already halfway to earning an associate degree. If you’re already enrolled in a pathway degree program, you can earn a certificate on the way to earning your diploma.
By beginning with a career-relevant certificate program, students can approach the highly competitive job market with a solid skill set that can lead to higher paying jobs, career advancement, or a totally different professional position, all while building a solid foundation for seamless transfer into one of our associate degree programs. Students are encouraged to work closely with their advisors to choose the appropriate classes!
