The Associate of Science (AS) in Business Administration combines general education, business and elective courses, offering a solid foundation for a faith-based liberal arts education with business administration foundation courses. The AS coursework is offered in weekend, evening, and online formats. This accelerated program allows for greater freedom in choosing courses that meet the unique scheduling needs of working adults. It also provides students the general education and foundational requirements necessary to complete a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Please refer to the specific program catalog page for additional requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration  degree program.

The AS requires a total of 60 credit hours for graduation, which includes 39 credit hours of general education (some business courses can also fulfill general education requirements), 18 credit hours of business administration courses, and 3 hours of elective credit. Prior college, military, and technical credits can be used toward the AS degree. Students may transfer in a maximum of 45 credit hours (75% of the AS degree requirements). Students may take a maximum of 15 credit hours of 300 and 400 level courses in the AS degree program.

Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
