General Education Certificate requires 35 credits (17-18 core credits and 18 elective credits). Each class is 3 credits so you need to take 12 classes. This give you a one-year degree in general studies.
Associates Degree requires 60 credits (35 core credits and 25 electives credits) Each class is 3 credits so you need to take 20 classes. This gives you a degree in general studies.
Each class is $5/credit or $15/class with an additional book/ materials fee for some classes. For some classes the book/materials fee is included in the class, meaning you don't need to buy the book it is provided for you. Some classes will require a book to be bought separately.
