Graduations

Students at graduation

Overall awards (degrees and certificates) granted annually, while they have varied a bit, have remained around 350 for the past several years (dashed line, right-hand axis below). 

The past three years have seen a shift as the percentage of our graduates receiving the Associate of General Studies (AGS) has declined while those receiving the Associate of Arts (AA) degree has increased. 

 

The other categories and types of awards have remained relatively stable. 

This AGS-to-AA trend mirrors what we have seen with incoming students’ declaration preferences, as shown in the Student Demographics section.
