BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has been awarded an associate degree for community college classes he took as a high school student in the 1970s.

Snyder filled out a graduation application after being invited to by Kellogg Community College and an association of Michigan’s community colleges. He was awarded an associate of arts degree Monday in a ceremony at the Battle Creek college.

Snyder earned 25 credits as a Lakeview High student. He got the remaining 37 credits needed through a reverse transfer agreement with the University of Michigan, where he earned three degrees by age 23.

Snyder says taking college classes in high school was a “wonderful opportunity.” He says that he signed a 2012 law expanding dual-enrollment opportunity for high school students.
