The Associate of Science degree with a major in Business Administration is viewed as the first step toward a baccalaureate degree in business. Courses in the associate degree program fulfill many of the General Business Component Courses in the baccalaureate programs offered by the Graham School of Business.
Requirements for Graduation:
To be eligible for graduation, students majoring in Business Administration must complete a minimum of 60 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher, and complete the General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. Courses used to complete General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.
The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations (FCO 103 will be a required co-requisite with FCO 105 for students who have a high school GPA below 3.20), and Disciplinary Perspectives. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation.
Students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent Business course. (Refer to the course description for specific prerequisites.) Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation. Students who are waived from FYS must complete 3 credits of non-business coursework.
