The number of credits needed to complete an associate's Degree in general will depend on the mandates of the state, and your program of study. As an example, the amount of credits reare required to complete an associate's Degree in the state of New Jersey is now 64. However, there are some programs that require much more, to include an Associate of Science degree as a Registered nurse, a Respiratory Therapist or Dental Hygienists to name a few. These programs will require – in some cases – the completion of credits well into the seventies. Usually this is due to the professional phase of the courses required to complete the degree. Viper1
