What is the difference between Associate Degree and High school Diploma Completion

Associate Degree: Certificate of Completion program community college (Community College), also known as dual study. This program requires student complete high school and community college for two years at aged 16 and older. And then students can continue  go to university in the United States. .Many Americans choose a community college to reduce costs. In two years attending Community College, students must complete 90 credits (credits) to get by Associates Degree (AD),meet the requirements of many workplaces.If you are not going to do this right away or want to learn more, students with Associate Degree may enroll university . 

Diploma: Vocational training programs, this is a certificate issued after completion of the course at a professional training school to ensure students fully skilled engineering practice in a field specific areas. This certificate is issued to students who complete the program does not require a degree and usually only lasts a year or less. This certificate is only used for the engineering industry or profession.Conditions are also quite easy to study, students only need a high school diploma or equivalent is enough. However, there are also a number of other sectors such as accounting, students should have a basic knowledge of other newly enrolled. 

Why choose a community college student? 

6/10 students in American choose community colleges (dual study) for low fees. We can say it is also the most fundamental reason for the choice of the middle-class families. Average tuition community colleges around 9000-11000 USD. This figure is only 50% compared with the four-year universities. Thus, students can reduce the total cost by the first two years at community colleges.  On the other hand, the entry requirements are also quite flexible in order to create the most favorable conditions for students.
Unlike universities, community college student assessment criteria and have separate intensive English program for students who need English skills increase. Therefore, most cases do not require TOEFL, IELTS, SAT when admission. Entry requirements for academic and lower than the four-year university. Typically, the input of students just reached high school GPA of 7.0 or above for TOEFL iBT 61 or IELTS: 5.5. Students who do not qualify will learn more ESL program after admission.
