Description:

See the state issued Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) template for any futher clarification regarding program requirements.

The Associate in Science for Transfer in Business Administration degree will provide students with the lower division course work to successfully prepare for upper division work. This degree is designed to provide a clear and seamless pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. California Community College students who are awarded an AS-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses. Current and prospective community college students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.

Students will have to fulfill the following requirements to earn this degree.

  1. Completion of 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:

    a) The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth requirements; and

    b) A minimum of 26 semester units as required for the Associate in Science for Transfer in Business Administration major.

  2. Obtainment of an overall minimum grade point average of 2.0.
  3. Earn a grade of C or better in all courses required for the Associate in Science for Transfer in Business Administration major.

Program Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:

  1. Satisfy the educational requirements necessary to successfully pursue a baccalaureate degree in Business Administration;
  2. demonstrate analytical, critical thinking, and decision-making skills required to succeed in a business context;
  3. demonstrate an understanding of the complex nature of business in a diverse global economy with the integration of ethics and social responsibility; and
  4. integrate knowledge of the elements of American business and economic principles including accounting, law, management, marketing, and human relations in organizations.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.
