Two-Year College Degrees

Two-Year College Degrees

Reach Your Dreams, Faster

In just two years, you can graduate and be transfer-ready, or start earning faster by going directly into the workforce.

Two-year transfer degrees may be the equivalent of the first two years of study required by four-year colleges and universities, and the degrees include core course work you'll need to complete before concentrating on your major field of study. 

Choose the path that’s right for you, then start your application. We're looking forward to meeting you!

You can transfer your Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) liberal arts degree to a four-year school. Kirkwood graduates even have guaranteed admission into Iowa, Iowa State, or UNI!

Whether your degree is an A.A. or A.S. depends on your major.

A technical Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree prepares you for an in-demand technical job after graduation.

“It's not like a typical community college. They have a lot of facilities that you would find at a 4-year school. Plus, the class sizes are small, the quality of class is high, and the cost is low.”
