Additional Degrees and Certificates of Achievement

A student may earn multiple Associate degrees and certificates from Cañada College. Only the degrees and certificates that are approved by the state which require 12 or more units of course work will be posted to student’s academic record, and will receive diplomas for each degree and certificate of achievement earned.

To earn additional degrees and certificates, any course work used to meet the graduation requirements may count toward more than one degree and certificate. Courses used for one major may be used to meet requirements for additional majors.

Courses used to meet the competency requirements for the first degree may be used to fulfill the requirements for additional degrees, provided the student has maintained “continued attendance” (see the graduation and catalog rights requirements on page 66). If a break in enrollment occurs, a student must comply with the competency, general education, and major course requirements in effect at the time the student resumes attendance or any catalog year thereafter.
