Which degree is right for me?

I want to grow my career skills….

I want to jumpstart my career….

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree and the Associate in Science (AS) degree gives you the option of completing your degree in two years and starting a career, or using your credits for seamless transition into one of NWF State College’s associated Bachelor of Applied Science or Bachelor of Science degrees.

I want to transfer to a major university….

I want an affordable four-year degree program….

NWF State College’s Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees prepare students for the local workforce through quality programs offered at half the cost of similar programs offered at universities.
