Information on West Shore Community College

ASM Tech students are able to pursue any path offered through West Shore Community College. (Please note: some portions of corrections/law enforcement paths require students to be 18 to participate.)

Most students aim for an Associate Degree with plans to transfer those credits to a 4-year university, (in-state or out-of-state). However, each year a strong group of students work on a two-year certficate or degree with plans to go straight to work after graduating.

On average, 70% of our students graduate with an Associate Degree. (The average number of credits for those who don't achieve their degree is still 50-55 college credits.)
