Associate in Arts Degree Completion Program (AA)

After beginning the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree completion program, the University identified a need to provide a bridge experience for individuals without two years of previous college work to transition into the BBA program. The Associate in Arts (AA) degree completion program was designed to facilitate that transition. The instructional goals and objectives are identical with those established for the similar degree in the traditional undergraduate program.

Below is a summary of graduation requirements for the AA degree completion program.
