Program Design

The Accounting and Business Administration Transfer associate degree program is designed for students who plan to earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting, business administration or marketing. This program provides a broad liberal arts background consisting mostly of courses normally taken in the first two years at a baccalaureate college or university. In addition, students will take courses in accounting and business administration. Advanced courses should be taken at the institution to which you transfer.

Students should be familiar with the requirements of the institutions to which they will transfer. Therefore, we encourage selection of transfer institutions as early as possible. Students should see an advisor before choosing elective courses because each transfer institution may have specific requirements.


We recommend that students have a sound foundation in mathematics before entering this program. Take the assessment test early to determine your level of mathematical ability. Students must achieve at least a C or better in an accounting course to continue on to the next level. Note: To take a business course numbered 100 or higher, students must be eligible for ENG* 101 . To take an accounting course numbered 100 or higher, students must be eligible for ENG* 101  and MAT* 095  or higher.
