Career Technical Education Certificate Holders
If you already have a certificate and a great job, WADP’s general ed courses turn certificates into Associate Degrees—so you go even further!

Transferable to CSU and UC
WADP degrees meet all general education requirements for CCSF, CSU, and most requirements for UC.

Undecided on Major
Liberal Arts degrees are a great place to start if you know you want to pursue a Bachelor’s degree but are undecided about your ultimate goals. Because most courses apply to your general education requirements, we make every unit count.
