    Associate’s Degrees Are Accessible, Affordable, and Time-Friendly Ways to Gain a Postsecondary Education There are two main ways to look at an associate’s degree. The first is to consider it as the freshman and sophomore years of a bachelor’s degree. Finishing the first two years of an undergrad degree at a community college and then transferring to a four-year university can save a person or family thousands of dollars in tuition costs.
