Earn a Certificate of Completion or an Associate Degree



What’s the Difference?


Certificate of Completion

The Certificate of Completion in General Education is official proof that a student has completed the general education requirements for all majors. It will consist of 34-37 credits, depending on the student’s choice of courses. Students who earn a Certificate of Completion can apply for an SLCC certificate to be transferred to other colleges and universities. If you will be attending a USHE school, they will accept the certificate as proof of all general education requirements completed.
This is a great choice for students who are undecided on their major, but want to get started with college classes while in high school. This also allows for flexibility in a student’s schedule for high school classes they enjoy.

Associate Degree of General Studies

The General Studies Associate of Science degree requires the students to complete an additional 27 credit hours beyond those required in the Certificate of Completion. This means students will have earned 61-64 credits in total.
Because Copper Hills cannot offer 27 credits in one specific area, students can only earn a General Studies Associate degree while in high school.
The is a great choice for students who want to earn their Associate Degree while in high school. Students are eligible to walk at SLCC’s graduation ceremony. Please keep in mind, any credits you take that are not part of your Bachelor’s Degree will turn into elective credits after you transfer.
