An Associate Degree is a formal credential that recognizes the successful completion of sixty (60) credits in Arts or Sciences.

In addition to general Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees, Associate Degrees with the following specializations are offered: Biology, Creative Writing, English and Psychology.

Only those Capilano University courses with university transfer credit at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver or Okanagan Campus), Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria, or the University of Northern British Columbia will count towards the Associate Degree.
