Associate's Degree

South Coast Educational Collaborative has partnered with Bristol Community College to implement an Associate's Degree program designed for Instructional Paraprofessionals. The program of studies is comprised of courses that meet general degree requirements as well as electives chosen to best prepare the candidates for their current work assignments as paraprofessionals. Most courses transfer to four-year state colleges and universities.

Students attend evening classes at South Coast's Graduate Learning Center in Swansea during fall, spring, and summer semesters. The courses are designed to meet No Child Left Behind requirements. Ongoing student advising is an integral component of the program.
