The Associate of Technical Studies degree (ATS) is a degree completion option for transfer or returning students who have completed up to 30 semester hours of technical course work at the 1000-2000 level, but have not earned a degree.
The format of this flexible Associate degree enables students to apply their previously completed technical coursework and then supplement that technical background with the UT Core requirements common to baccalaureate degrees while earning the Associate degree.
There is no Direct from High School (DHS) admission to the Associate of Technical Studies. Admission as a transfer student requires a 2.0 cumulative GPA.
