An Associate degree is designed to allow a student to complete a degree within two years in an area of interest. This degree would be appropriate for students who desire to obtain an initial college degree prior to making the commitment to complete a four-year degree. Courses completed for an associate degree can be applied to the completion of a four-year degree.
The Contract must include an additional 24 credits within the Department of Business Administration with prior approval of the student's Business faculty advisor. Of these 24 credits up to 6 credits may be from non-business areas if, in the opinion of the student and the advisor, such courses will make a contribution to the student's objectives. A student wishing to concentrate the 24 credits in a specific area such as Accounting, Management, or Marketing must consult with the Business faculty advisor.
