The Associate in Science degree program in Business Administration provides a strong background in liberal arts and sciences and a broad overview of the business field. It is designed for students intending to transfer to a senior college to earn a bachelor’s degree in Business. 

The program requires a minimum of 30 credits in the Common Core and a minimum of 29 credits in the major. The credits earned in liberal arts and sciences and business in this program are generally transferable to four-year institutions. Students are advised to meet with a faculty adviser from the Department of Business to discuss their programs, applicable electives, and the transferability of course credits to four-year colleges. Specific requirements for transferring credits vary with each institution. 

Starting in Fall 2021, new and continuing students may enroll in an online version of the A.S. in Business Administration program.  The degree requirements for the degree are the same as the traditional program.  However, the coursework for the program will be offered in a fully online format.  For more information about the program, please see the website for the online Business Administration program.
