The student who successfully completes the prescribed courses in the Culinary Arts curriculum will be awarded an Associate in Science Degree, a Certificate of Achievement and/or a Certificate of Competence. The time to complete the certificates or the degree varies from one to four semesters. Cost of cutlery, books and uniforms is approximately $600 for the beginning student. In order to obtain a culinary arts certificate or degree, students must pass all required culinary arts (CULN) courses with a grade of C or better.
In an effort to provide students with real-world experiences, all courses in the Culinary Arts Program require participation in activities outside of the regularly scheduled class time. The days and times of these activities vary according to particular courses and are included in course syllabi. Please be aware that these activities are factored into the final course grade.
