​What Certificates and Degrees are available?

Every certificate and degree offered by Spoon River College is available to you. You may want to consider an Associate in Applied Science for career and technical programs. Or perhaps you would like to consider the Associate of Arts & Science if you plan to transfer to a four year institution. You may also tailor your own degree through the Associate in General Studies.

You will find most of the information you need in the Spoon River College Catalog which is updated every year. You need flexibility and most classes are offered face-to-face, through interactive video, and/or online.

Earning a degree or certificate is easier than ever. If you are thinking about getting your degree or certificate, you won't be starting a square one. Under the Plus 50 Completion Strategy, adult students can gain credits for past education and work experience.
