Program Overview

The Associate in Scinece Degree in Business Administration for Transfer is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

This degree is intended for students who are interested in transferring to a California State University (CSU) campus with a major in Business Administration.

The Associate in Science Degree for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing an AS-T degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts the AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor's degree. This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or university or a college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a Skyline College counselor for further information on university admissions and transfer requirements.

A grade of "C" or better is required for each course applied to the major. Major course requirements may also be applied to meet general education requirements.
