Admission to the Bachelor in Applied Administration program is open to all students who hold an associate degree or have 60 semester hours from an accredited institution. The associate degree comprises the first two years of the program. 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 degree or 60 semester hours from a regionally accredited* institution. Proof of degree completion will be required. Or, students can begin classes after degree completion.


  • Transferability is based on school accreditation, course/content comparability (including evaluation of practical assignments), year taken, and final grade.
  • Submit all official transcripts for every school attended. Learn more about requesting your transcripts.

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).
