The program is comparable in length and course content to the first two years of baccalaureate business administration curricula so that students who earn the AS degree will be prepared for transfer to four-year colleges or universities. Students should become familiar with the requirements of the major department at the contemplated transfer institutions. When students have a choice of courses, they should base their choice on the requirements of the transfer institutions. The responsibility for proper course selection rests with the student.
