Admission to the Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies (BTAS) program is open to all students who hold an associate degree from an accredited institution. The associate degree comprises the first two years of the Bachelor of Applied Administration. The curriculum allows students to make up general education requirements not included in their associate degree, while completing the core requirements of the program.



You have either finished, or are currently finishing, your associate’s degree from an regionally accredited* institution. Proof of degree completion will be required. Or, students can begin classes after degree completion.

Transfer Course Credit

The only considerations of associate or bachelor degree transfer work are in the case of general education courses. Associate degree and bachelor degree transfer coursework must be reviewed to ensure they meet UC minimums for a bachelors degree. If they do not, a general education course must be taken in the place of AIS elective(s).
