Automotive Collision Repair and Refinishing AAS: Full-time

Plan of Study 2016-2017

The following is a plan of requirements to complete this Associate of Applied Science degree in 2 years. Each student’s experience will vary slightly, as this plan does not include transfer work, Advanced Placement (AP), or other institutions’ concurrent enrollment credits. Math and English placement will be based on the student’s Accuplacer/ACT/SAT scores. If developmental courses are required, they should be taken in the student’s first semester.

NOTE: This plan assumes the student is prepared to take the courses listed. If prerequisites are required, additional semesters may be required to complete this degree.

Meet with the Academic Program Advisor and consult DegreeWorks for specific degree requirements.

Advising Notes

  • Students who need to take preparatory classes to meet the requirements of the first semester courses should plan on extra time to complete the program. It is the students’ responsibility to understand the requirements for their chosen program of study. It is highly recommended that the student meet with the program advisor prior to starting this program. The program advisor may be reached at (801) 957-4550.

  • Currently the Automotive Collision Repair and Refinishing courses are taught during the day.

  • It is possible to earn some laboratory credit through cooperative education if students are employed in a related job involving automotive mechanics. With prior approval of a teaching faculty member and faculty CO-OP coordinator for the Automotive Department, students would register for the regular laboratory course.
