This plan of courses is provided for individuals who want to work part-time toward a Biotechnology associate degree. For the student who needs to work more than 15 hours each week, or has family or personal obligations that require taking a reduced course load, the Biotechnology program has developed a three-year program of study leading to the AAS. Each year, the majority of entering students choose this plan over the traditional two-year course of study to allow them to focus on maximizing success and learning while still meeting their other obligations. Students often are able to find part-time industry jobs that provide additional professional experience beyond what they might earn on the two-year plan.
The three-year plan is slightly flexible; however all modifications must be made in consultation with a program faculty advisor. This plan has been created with all program and course prerequisites in mind; deviation from this plan may add an additional year to the time needed to earn the degree.
This program is not offered online.
