- The programs of study offered by Atlanta Metropolitan College are of 2 major types: college transfer programs, and career programs. Transfer programs are designed for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities upon the completion of two years of course work at the college. Transfer programs of study provide the freshman and sophomore years of academic coursework required for a bachelor's degree. Transfer programs lead to the Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees. Career programs are designed for students who wish to complete a college program which will prepare them to enter employment at a level of competence requiring more than high school education, but less than a four-year college or university degree. Students who complete a career program receive the Associate of Applied Science degree. Students in certificate programs earn certificates.

The technology labs are equipped with software for electronic tutorials, Internet resources, word processing, multimedia software and support software relevant to each academic discipline.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
