Administrative Office Technology

Associate Degree

About the Program

With new technological advances in today’s modern office, the professional must fill many roles. The office professional works alongside the executive in decision making, research and public relations while using current office technology. The Administrative Office Technology (AOT) program is designed to provide students with the skills and experience necessary to achieve top-level information processing/administrative positions.

In addition to offering traditional office skills training, the program offers specialized courses in legal and medical employment areas. The AOT program includes the use of the microcomputer and indepth training on the most popular training software packages, such as Microsoft Word, Access, Excel, Publisher and PowerPoint.

Learning experiences for students in the Administrative Office Technology program are provided in classrooms on the Airport and Beltline Campuses. Senior practicums or cooperative work experiences (externship) are required.


Basic keyboarding is a skill necessary for successful course completion in the AOT program; therefore, AOT 105-Keyboarding is a prerequisite course for most AOT courses.  Students are required to take AOT 105-Keyboarding or score 25 net words per minute (nwpm) on the keyboarding placement test.

Students must earn a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses offered within the Business/Public Service and Information Systems Technology Departments for the grade to be counted toward graduation.  Specifically, these include courses with the following prefixes: ACC, AOT, BAF, BUS, CPT, EGR, HUS, IST, LEG, MGT and MKT.

Students must meet all exit program competencies for graduation from this program.
