The Jefferson College Apprenticeship Credit Option Program is designed for individuals who have completed apprenticeship training or are presently enrolled in an established apprenticeship program.
The program allows an individual to transfer credit for his/her apprenticeship training to Jefferson College. Eighteen hours of general education are required to complete the Associate of Applied Science degree. A student can spread out these 18 credit hours over a typical four-year apprenticeship program or can complete them all in a semester or two if his/her schedule allows.
A key element of the program involves recognizing the value and worth of apprenticeship, on-the-job training by granting college credit for this work experience. The program’s Associate of Applied Science degree not only elevates the significance of individual apprenticeship training in the eyes of the community, but it also allows individuals to pursue an advanced degree and to increase their technical and related skills.
