The Business Associates of Science Transfer (AST) program is designed for students with a high level of certainty about earning a bachelor’s degree in a business discipline from an Oregon public university. The degree meets lower-division general education requirements for transfer to an Oregon public institution, and students who successfully complete the courses and program GPA requirements will transfer in with junior standing in the major. Admission to a business school is not guaranteed; students are strongly encouraged to contact the institution to which they intend to transfer and work closely with their COCC advisor before choosing courses in the Business AST.
This program is part of a statewide Major Transfer Map (MTM) agreement that identifies the community college courses needed to transfer to any Oregon public universtiy as a junior seeking a Bachelor of Science in business disciplines.
