Associate's (AS and AAS) Degree Programs

Benefits of an Associate's Degree

In today’s competitive economy, finding a job in a field that you love can be difficult without a college degree. An online associate’s degree from Kaplan University could be a great way to further your education and pursue your career goals.

Students who earn their online associate's degree from Kaplan University enjoy all the benefits of a college-level education without the added complication or hassle of leaving home to attend classes.* The cost of earning an associate’s degree is typically lower than that of a bachelor’s degree, and we are committed to helping you find the financial solution that is right for you.

Two-Year Degrees

Kaplan University’s associate’s degree programs (AAS and AS) typically take students 2 years to complete and consist of:

  • Approximately 20 courses
  • Online learning formats that allow students flexible study schedules as they earn their degree
  • On-campus program options for a more traditional educational experience

Pursue Your Career Goals

An associate’s degree from Kaplan University can help accelerate your career goals. Because these degrees are typically completed in 2 years,  an associate’s degree program can help you enter the workforce sooner than when committing to a 4-year degree program. Should you choose to continue your education at a later date, you could apply the credits earned toward a more advanced degree, such as a Kaplan University bachelor’s degree.
