How to Apply

The LDT program (formerly ATE) is intended for any individual with a technical or applied associate degree who wishes to enhance his or her education, employment or promotional opportunities. This program teaches students how to integrate technology into their existing work environment and provides graduates with skills that can be applied in virtually any industry.

Typically students have an associate's degree and realize the importance of having a Bachelor's degree in order to advance their careers. Our fully-online program makes the degree convenient and appropriate for candidates of any age or career position, from entry-level to those seeking career advancement or change.
