Jackson State Offers New Certificates

The Tennessee Board of Regents has approved four new certificate options for JSCC students.

Three new Academic Certificates have also been approved: General Education for AA/AS Degrees; General Education for AAS Degrees; and Pre-Allied Health. These certificates allow for students to have a ‘check out’ point during their journey towards completion of the Associate Degree. The General Education for AA/AS Degrees Academic Certificate may be awarded to students who complete the 41 credit hours of general education required in a transfer program. The General Education for AAS Degrees Academic Certificate may be awarded to students who complete the 15-17 credit hours of general education that is required for Associate of Applied Science degrees in the areas of Business, Computer Information Systems or Industrial Technology. The Pre-Allied Health Academic Certificate may be awarded to students who complete the 23 credit hours of general education that is needed for one of JSCC’s allied health or nursing programs. For more information about these certificates, please refer to the JSCC 2011-2012 College Catalog or check with your advisor.
