As more industry partners and students come to us with niche needs and skills, these flexible degree options provide the rigor and focus needed for individual student’s career goals that are not represented in other degree offerings. The Associate in Applied Science Degree and Associate of Science Degree in Individualized Studies are 60 credits in length each. A key component of these degrees are the required 2 credit CCDS1500 course. In this course, a student is exposed to career development theory and develops the resources, contacts and skills necessary to design a degree program that will prepare them for success. Through consultation with their instructor, other faculty and industry representatives, a student will construct a degree plan that meets both the requirements of MnSCU's "Design Criteria for Undergraduate Individualized Programs" policy and HTC requirements for a degree. This degree plan, along with an assessment plan, will be key outcomes of the CCDS1500 course. The degree plan will then go on file with the Registrar. After successfully completing this degree plan and demonstrating that the assessment plan has been met, which will be checked through the CCDS1510 course, the student will then be eligible for graduation.
If, at some point, a student needs to alter their designed degree plan after initial approval, they may sign up for CCDS1505, which allows them the opportunity to get approval for alterations to their degree plan through further consultation with the instructor, other faculty and industry representatives.
