PURPOSE: With the rapid development of business and industry in Virginia, there is a great demand for qualified personnel in business administration to provide leadership for this economic growth. The Associate of Science degree with a major in Business Administration is designed for persons who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree in business administration.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: General college curricular admission
PROGRAM NOTES: The following high school units are strongly recommended: four units of English, three units of college preparatory mathematics, and one unit of laboratory science. This curriculum requires courses in business, principles of economics and accounting, in addition to courses in mathematics, natural science, humanities/fine arts, and English which are usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate business administration curriculum. This program is aligned with the Transfer Virginia Business Administration common curriculum. Students are strongly encouraged to consult their academic advisor and review transfer options using the Transfer Virginia Portal, https://www.transfervirginia.org/. With the assistance of their advisor, students are urged to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major department in the institution to which transfer is contemplated. Students are advised to complete the AS degree at the community college, choosing courses that satisfy both the requirements of their targeted transfer four-year college, as indicated by the Transfer Portal, as well as the AS degree. If students contemplate transferring to an out-of-state college, they should also make contact with the four-year college and consult that college’s catalog before deciding which courses to take.
COMPUTER COMPETENCY REQUIREMENT: Students in this program will meet the college’s computer competency requirement by successfully completing SDV 101 .
FOUR-YEAR COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY TRANSFER INFORMATION: Additional information regarding transfer requirements for in-state colleges is available www.transfervirginia.org.
