Business Administration AS-T (Semester 4)

Students who enroll in this Learning Community are on the path to completing the degree in two years.

The Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer degree provides the student with an introductory foundation of business and prepares a student to transfer to a CSU. The program offers students a foundation in business operations and management, accounting, economics, mathematics, computer science, and business law.

This degree is designed to provide a pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree in Business Administration. California Community College students who are awarded an Associate in Science in Business Administration degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major. 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 review their options for transfer and to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.

See the current Catalog or check with a Counselor for more information about this degree program.

For more information about joining this learning community, contact the Applied Science, Business, and Technology Division in HOLT 140 or telephone (209) 954-5230.
