This program is designed for students who wish to earn a degree in addition to completing the classroom, laboratory, and clinical requirements for the certificate of completion in Surgical Technology. The academic preparation is intended not only to provide a sound basis for expanding requirements of the health care field, but also act as a bridge to other health professions.

Those students desiring the associate degree option must complete the entire certificate curriculum of 36 semester hours in sequential order. Students will be given two years to complete the certificate curriculum. Students who fail to do so will be required to reapply for acceptance into the program and repeat all courses. The additional 26 semester hours for the AAS degree may be taken before, during or after the certificate requirements.

A grade of C or higher is required for satisfactory completion of all courses in the curriculum.

A student seeking entry into Surgical Technology must file a specific program application form and complete additional procedures as required. Information is available on the Surgical Technology website.
