Business Administration 2.0 Associate in Science Degree for Transfer (AS-T)

Financial Aid Eligible

The Business Administration 2.0 Associate in Science Degree for Transfer (AS-T) is designed to provide an opportunity for the Business Administration major to achieve an Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration for Transfer (AS-T in Business Administration) which completes the first and second year requirements for transfer to a four-year public California institution. While at least a baccalaureate degree is recommended preparation for those considering professional careers, completion of this curriculum will demonstrate commitment to the field and provide comprehensive preparation for further academic study through upper-division course work. This curriculum specifically prepares the prospective transfer student for upper division coursework in Business Administration or a similar major at a California State University (CSU) campus. Students should consult a counselor, the Transfer Center and the catalog of the transfer college or university to plan a specific program of study to meet the college or university’s requirements. Note: Courses that fulfill major requirements for an Associate Degree for Transfer at Cypress College might not be the same as those required for completing the major at all transfer institutions offering a Baccalaureate Degree. The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440, now codified in California Education Code sections 66746-66749) guarantees admission to a California State University (CSU) campus for any community college student who completes an "associate degree for transfer", a newly established variation of the associate degrees traditionally offered at a California community college. The AS-T is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor's degree (unless the major is designated "high-unit" major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. Students successfully completing the AS-T in Business Administration will gain knowledge in accounting, business communications, information technologies, finance, law, management, and marketing. Because business is such a broad field with many emphases and majors, this degree will provide the student a broad overview of the possible fields of study in various business areas. To earn an AS-T in Business Administration students must complete the following requirements: (1) a minimum of 30 semester units or 45 quarter units in the Business Administration major with a grade of C or better; AP(Pass) grade is an acceptable grade for a course in the major only if the P is defined to be equivalent to a C or better (2) California State University General Education Breadth requirements (CSU GE Breadth) or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC); (3) elective courses to complete a minimum of 60 units of CSU transferable coursework; (4) have an overall GPA of 2.0.
