The Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer Degree prepares students for graduation from Cosumnes River College as well as transfer to a four-year university. It is designed to meet common lower division requirements for a major in business administration at most California State University (CSU) campuses. Students with this degree will receive priority admission with junior status to the CSU System, although not necessarily to a particular campus or major. Courses required for the degree provide students with a practical as well as theoretical foundation in the discipline. Although satisfactory completion of the CRC Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer (A.S.-T) degree provides a solid foundation and satisfies the standard prerequisites for upper division coursework for business administration majors at most CSU and other four-year universities, it is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor since major and general education requirements vary for each transfer university.
Note to Transfer Students:
The Business Administration A.S.-T degree is designed for students who plan to transfer to a campus of the California State University (CSU). Other than the required core, the courses you choose to complete this degree will depend to some extent on the selected CSU for transfer. For students wishing to transfer to other universities (UC System, private, or out-of-state), the Associate Degree for Transfer may not provide adequate preparation for upper-division transfer admissions; it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for the major, as programs vary widely in terms of the required preparation.
*Major courses which also fulfill a transfer General Education (GE) requirement (“double-counting”). Please note that there are limitations on double-counting — consult a Counselor when planning your courses to maximize the number of courses that fulfill both the requirements for the major and GE.
¹Students may also select one of the following courses if not already used: MATH 341, MATH 343, MATH 344 or STAT 300.
