Degrees and Certificates for International Students

Truckee Meadows Community College offers a wide range of academic and university transfer programs, including more than 80 certificate and degree options approved for international students. A certificate of achievement may be completed in a minimum of one year, and involves an emphasis area such as culinary arts, graphic communications, or early childhood education. An associate degree may be completed in two to three years.

Degree options include:

  • Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS), designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university for a baccalaureate (bachelor's) degree.
  • Associate of Applied Science (AAS) is a non-transfer degree designed for students who seek employment and/or certification in their chosen academic and/or career emphasis.

The TMCC College Catalog contains information about all of our academic programs. International students work closely with an international student academic advisor to select the appropriate certificate or degree to fit their needs.
