The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Apprenticeship Technology provides participants in US Department of Labor (USDOL) approved apprenticeships to earn a degree while receiving up to 38 credits for the required Related Technical Instruction components of their apprenticeship training. Credits are awarded based upon American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations or other nationally-recognized standards.
Apprentices in any occupation for which USDOL approved apprenticeship options are available may enter the program. Examples include (but are not limited to) construction trades, mining and maritime operations, and certain automotive, aviation, allied health and hospitality careers. UAA does not place students in apprenticeships. While the program can direct students to the opportunities, it is the student's responsibility to arrange the apprenticeship.
The AAS in Apprenticeship Technology constitutes the first two years of the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Applied Technologies Leadership.
