Applied Technology (1+1 Program)

Applied Technology

Program Outcomes

Have you completed or are you currently enrolled in a technical skill program at an area technical school or career center?

The Applied Technology program (also known as the 1+1 Program) allows you to use your Certificate of Completion of that technical skill program* as the equivalent of 30 college credit hours toward an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Applied Technology degree from NCMC. In order to receive the free, articulated credit, you must complete the following requirements:

  • Enroll at NCMC within 15 months of high school graduation or completion of the technical skill program.
  • Present an official articulated credit certificate (signed by the technical school) and your technical school/career center transcript to NCMC’s Admissions office.
  • Complete a minimum of 31 credit hours, including 15 credit hours of general education requirements, 15 credit hours of approved electives, and either an Employment Strategies or AGNR Career Development course.
  • Complete the NCMC course requirements with an overall GPA of at least 2.0.
  • Apply with the Registrar’s office to have the articulated credit applied to your student transcript and pay any transcription fees, if applicable, once all requirements have been met.

Would you like to also specialize in a particular subject area or earn an additional college certificate?

The Applied Technology degree is structured in a way to allow you take all of your electives in a particular subject area (such as Agriculture, Business, or Industrial Maintenance, for example) so that you might be able to earn a college certificate in addition to your AAS degree. Or, you can take a variety of career and technical elective courses to meet the elective course requirement.

Many options exist for you to take college courses as part of this degree — on campus, on-line, or at outreach locations. If you are interested in continuing your education by transferring on to a four year school after completing your Applied Technology AAS at NCMC, be sure to visit with your advisor or the program contact early to learn more about any transfer opportunities.

* Check with Program Advisor to be sure your technical skill program is eligible for articulation from a partnering technical school or career center.
