Applied Technology Diploma (ATD) Programs

The Applied Technology Diploma program prepares students for immediate entry into a career in the workforce. The program requires prescribed technical courses. For students who meet degree seeking requirements college credit hours earned in an Applied Technology Diploma program are applicable towards a related Associate in Applied Science Degree or an Associate in Science Degree. The Applied Technology Diploma does not contain a separate general education component, but students are required to demonstrate or achieve a specified level of competence in basic skills as evidenced by minimum scores on the Test of Adult Basic Skills (TABE) before graduation.
