Two-year degrees can land a career quickly

10/26/2010 —

Individuals considering a college education or looking to change careers can fast-track their goals with a two-year degree. Associate degree and career options will be the focus at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus during a special “Think Two-year, Think Penn State” open house on Monday, Nov. 8, from 6-8 p.m. in the lobby of the Biomedical Building.

The program will focus on the campus’ two-year degree programs in Business, Engineering Technology (Architectural, Building Environmental Systems and Electrical), Human Development and Family Studies, Information Science and Technology, Mining Technology, Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, and Science.

Apryl Kadish, a Penn State Fayette admission counselor, says, “Current high school students and recent high school graduates, as well as returning adult students, may not realize that they can often fast-track into a career with a two-year degree and build from there once they are employed in their field or industry. Here at Penn State Fayette, it is just one of many options an individual can consider. Many of our students using the two-year degree option have had career success.”

Penn State Fayette faculty, admission counselors and student aid staff will be on hand to speak to prospective students and answer questions. The $50 application fee will be waived for those who apply to Penn State Fayette at the event. Transfer students can get an unofficial evaluation of their college credits if they bring a transcript with them. Official high school and college transcripts are required when applying.
