Highland Community College offers educational programs designed to transfer into a baccalaureate program at senior institutions, lead directly to employment, or satisfy a special interest.

Students who plan to transfer to earn a baccalaureate degree should earn an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or in some instances an Associate of Engineering Science.

Students who desire to develop an individualized program of study to meet their personal and vocational goals may earn the Associate of General Studies degree.

Students who prefer to take course work leading directly to employment should enroll in a Certificate Program or an Associate of Applied Science degree.
