CIP Code: 24.0101
Length: 4 Semester

Purpose

The Associate of Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree: Business Administration Specialization program, is designed for persons who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree in a business-related field such as Business Administration or Accounting. Students are also encouraged to investigate Guaranteed Admission Agreements (GAA), available for many colleges and universities in Virginia. Interested students should discuss this with their academic advisor, contact the admissions office of their selected college, and review the college’s transfer guide.

Admission Requirements

In addition to the admission requirements established for the college, entry into this program requires proficiency in English and mathematics. Through the direct enrollment and self-enrollment survey or other measures students will be placed in the appropriate developmental or corequisite support courses in English and mathematics. Although developmental or support course credits do not apply toward the degree, these courses prepare students for collegiate-level work. Students required to take two or more developmental or corequisite support courses may need additional semesters to complete the degree.

Program Requirement

This curriculum should provide sufficient flexibility to meet lower-division requirements for business majors at a variety of colleges and universities and provide students success in transferring to obtain a baccalaureate degree. It is extremely important for students to work closely with their academic advisors to assure their successful transfer.
