Transfer Guidelines

Transfer opportunities for associate of applied science degrees, if existing, are very specific in nature. Students enrolling in an applied science degree with plans to transfer should explore opportunities with their faculty advisor.

Program Requirements

The first two semesters of the curriculum in management are similar to other curricula in business. However, in the second year each student will pursue her/his specialty in management. The curriculum includes technical courses in management, courses in related areas, general education and electives. Instruction consists of both the theoretical concepts and practical applications needed for future success in management. Students are urged to consult with their faculty advisor to plan their program and select electives. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the graduate will be awarded the associate of applied science degree in management.

Tech Prep Students

Tech Prep students may be eligible to earn credit for work completed in high school under existing articulation agreements. Students are encouraged to work with their advisors to avoid duplication of course work completed in high school. Students wishing to graduate with all Tech Prep competencies should select MKT 228 as a technical elective. Students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate program are urged to consider the Business Administration Program to earn an associate of arts and sciences degree.
