Well I'm thinking for employment purposes any associate degree of any kind looks better than 2 years of college that you dropped out of. I know some people in that boat. They have about 60 credits but have no interest in going back to school paying a bunch of money or taking a bunch of classes. This can help this advance professionally quickly and easily. Something to put on a resume. Personally, this AAS would look better on a resume than a 2-year college drop out. But that is my opinion and I don't hire people so idk.

Also, I have a friend who will have 60 credits from a 4-year university by the end of this semester.  If the university she goes to continues online for the fall will drop out or take time off school. I suggested this opinion to her if that happens and she loved the idea. Even just for the sake of finishing, say she never goes back to school she will have a diploma to show for her efforts.

Generally, employers won't care about an associates degree.  And, if you went to college and dropped out, that wouldn't be on your resume at all.

I'd say that it can't hurt, but won't help MUCH.  I probably wouldn't pay $500 for it, but some people might think it's worth it.  I only did it myself because it was free (I wanted to see if I could get it back when you could), and I've never put it on my resume - even when I didn't have my BS.  There wasn't a single job I ever applied to where an AAS was asked for (once in a while I'd see a low-level accounting job where they wanted an AS in Accounting or Business, but never a general AA/AS/AAS).

Good points. I will keep those things in mind for my friends.

But I'm confused because you went to college for 2 years and dropped out and didn't list it on your resume at all, wouldn't it look like you had no education? Wouldn't, in that case, having an AAS be worth it and look better on a resume to have something under the education section. Make it look like you finished a degree. idk.

I think for my friend (and lots others I know like her who dropped out after 2 years) if they spent thousands of dollars on a college education and nothing show for it, it might nice to have some sort of degree. Especially if it requires little cost or work. Kind makes the thousands of dollars spent on a degree less of waste and least they finished something for the money. Maybe these people could even go the free route with no transcript just to have something to hang on their wall for the two years they put in. 

I kind of agree honestly I know what you mean about jobs. My associates haven't helped me a ton in terms of employment. 

However, it used to be the case that in my state to substitute teach you to need an associate's degree in any subject of any kind. Now I think it is just 60 college credits or an associate's degree. Also if you work the school district you are highly qualified para-pro of classroom aid if you have an associate. The school district is more likely to hire someone with an associate's degree than someone without one. And I know that from personal experience and talking to the people who hire people there.

Also, I did apply for job that was a grant-funded position. This particular job required an associate's degree. This was the only job I've ever applied for that required an associate's degree.

I totally agree with you about having the degree in hand! It cannot hurt and has to look better than no degree!

A lot of these ATS systems won't even let you submit an application unless you've checked the (required) degree box. In those cases an associate's is better than no degree. Also, many civil service jobs require just an associate's (as opposed to corporate jobs that demand a bachelor's). I lost out on a great city job once because I didn't have a degree. My experience was perfect for the job otherwise, and the lady was about to schedule me for an interview but had one question... do I have a degree? I said no, and she asked in a tone that I knew meant PLEASE SAY YES! "In anything? Anything at all?" I had to say no again, and she said she was sorry, but it was a requirement. That sucked.
