Associate's Degree Scholarship/CDA Training

An Associate's degree ranges from 60 credit hours to 72 credit hours depending upon the program designed by the particular college or university. Most community colleges or universities offer CDA training classes that meet the requirements of the Council for Professional Recognition as well as the Associate Degree. Therefore, CDA training hours being taken at a participating community college or university would meet the criteria for this scholarship.
