Extended Degree - Associate in Applied Science (ACH.AASX)
The Architecture program will prepare students who are pursuing careers in architecture and related fields. The courses offered within the program will enable graduating students
to develop small to medium scale architectural projects from the phases of design through the development of construction drawings.
Upon successful completion, students will earn an Associate in Applied Science extended degree allowing them to pursue entry-level positions in the field of architecture and construction.
For further studies in architecture, the associate degree courses can be applied towards a baccalaureate program in architecture at the university level.
Architecture students enrolled at OCC have the option of following the OCC-Lawrence Technological University (LTU) Articulation Transfer Agreement track. As part of this understanding,
selected graduates can enter LTU’s architecture program at the junior level. OCC-LTU Articulation requires students to complete foundational courses, declare their intention to participate,
and have their portfolio reviewed before being accepted into the transfer track.
Students intending to pursue the OCC-LTU option should thoroughly understand the details of the Transfer Agreement before committing to the program by attending the group session with the
architecture program coordinator at OCC.
All questions related to the OCC architecture program or OCC-LTU transfer option may be addressed to the Architecture program at
