Business Administration 2.0: AS-T Degree

The Associate of Science degree with a major in Business Administration acknowledges that the student has established a foundation of knowledge in the fields of business and management. This foundation can be used as a basis for further study towards a baccalaureate degree at a transfer institution. To fulfill the requirements for this degree, students will complete the required and elective courses in the area of emphasis and the appropriate general education pattern (either CSU GE or IGETC) totaling 60 semester CSU-transferable units. Students are encouraged to work with a counselor to determine the appropriate pattern of general education courses based on the student's individual educational goals. Additional NVC graduation requirements do not apply to this degree. Students must successfully pass all courses in the area of emphasis with a minimum of “C” and maintain an overall minimum 2.0 GPA.
