Transfer to a bachelor's degree program.
The Associate of Arts (AA) business transfer degree program is designed to start you on the path toward a bachelor's degree. It allows students to complete their general education course requirements in business at a fraction of the cost of a four-year school. Benefits include:
- Approximately $38,000 in savings in tuition and fees over a two-year period in comparison to a state university.
- Higher chances of acceptance into your dream school.
- Time to decide: an AA business transfer degree is a general degree in business. It can later be applied to any business major.
Speak to our faculty advisers to see if the AA business transfer degree is the right choice for you.
