Individualized Technical Studies

Customize your degree

Lakeshore’s Individualized Technical Studies (ITS) associate degree is designed for working adults with unique backgrounds and educational needs that can’t be met by the college’s existing associate degree programs. ITS provides the option of creating your own degree. As an ITS student, you’ll work with an occupational mentor of your choosing, an academic counselor/advisor, and college faculty to design an academically sound, student- and industry-specific program that incorporates your appropriate prior learning experiences.
