Your Butler experience will provide you with the basic general education requirements and background work necessary to pursue your chosen career. Many of our programs grant necessary certifications as well as Associate's degrees.  Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university should work with an advisor to make sure their Butler courses will meet the requirements of their transfer institution.

More information concerning enrollment in courses and their transfer to specific colleges is available at the college Advising Centers.
