- meet Humanities , Natural Science , Quantitative Reasoning , Social Science , and Written Communication general education distribution area outcomes
It is the student’s responsibility to discuss sequencing and define their individual schedule with an advisor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
Completion of requirements for an Associate degree or equivalent from an accredited institution in an appropriate transportation, business administration, management, or operations-related program or its equivalent with an overall minimum 2.0 GPA in all coursework.
Admission to the program may occur when any 15 credits of the following can be documented: 5 college-level credits in each: English Composition, Quantitative Reasoning, Social Science, and Humanities.
10 credits must have been earned in Natural Sciences, with 5 of those in a lab science course, all with a minimum grade of 2.0 in each course.
This program includes a “Bridge” quarter, such that remaining prerequisites defined above may be taken post program admittance, but prior to admittance to the junior year of the program. The bridge may consist of 0-30 credits.
Academic Bridge - 0-30 Credits
Required Course Sequence
Note: If ACCT& 201 , BUS& 201 , and/or ENGL& 235 were taken previously, they should not be re-taken. Alternative courses, with adviser permission, may be substituted to maintain the graduation requirement of 90 credits minimum for a BAS degree.
General Education Requirements - 50 Credits
The following courses from the Program Requirements listed above, in addition to the Academic Bridge, meet the General Education requirements for this program.
Diversity and Social Justice Requirement
Within the degree requirements, students must complete a 3-5 credit course that meets the college’s Diversity and Social Justice (DSJ) requirement. DSJ courses are designated in the college schedule and are designed to meet other general education or technical requirements simultaneous to meeting the DSJ requirement (e.g., ENGL& 101 with the DSJ attribute meets both the ENGL& 101 requirement and the DSJ requirement).
Note: Not all sections of a course meet the DSJ requirement. Students should review the class information to ensure the class section includes “course attributes: meets diversity requirement.”
Visit the DSJ requirement webpage to view the current list of general education and technical courses that meet the requirement.
Students who have taken a DSJ class in a previous certificate or degree, do not have to take another DSJ class.
Total Program Credits: 185-215
