Career Programs

To prepare students whose goal is immediate employment upon graduation, Moraine Valley offers career programs that lead to Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees or to certificates. Many of the career programs transfer in whole or in part to some universities. However, these programs are not designed specifically for transfer. Students intending to transfer should consult an academic advisor. Career outlook information is available through the Occupational Outlook Handbook and other sources.

High school graduates may be eligible for proficiency credit in some career programs. Additional career programs are offered to Moraine Valley students at other area community colleges through cooperative agreements.
