  • Phase II: workforce education programs, including Associate in Science (AS) degree requirements and transfer, capstone degree articulation agreement, Applied Technology Diploma (ATD) transfer to associate degrees, and career ladder agreements—secondary, PSAV, and industry certification transfer to associate degree programs.
