VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky’s community and technical college system awarded a record number of associate degrees in the past academic year.

KCTCS officials say the system awarded 9,632 associate degrees during the 2014-15 academic year. They say that number is up by 52 over the prior year.

Since 2000, KCTCS says it has experienced a big increase in the awarding of credentials, with the number of associate degrees tripling and the number of certificates increasing ten-fold.

KCTCS Board of Regents Vice-Chair Gail Henson says the increase in associate degrees is significant given that the system is “in the bottom of an enrollment cycle” due to an improving economy.
