Academic Programs

Associate in Science (210)

Business programs at community colleges and bachelor's degree schools include courses and majors in general business, accounting, finance, marketing and management. The following recommendations apply to programs in all of these fields. Community college students are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree prior to transfer. Further, students should consult closely with an advisor early in their programs if they intend to transfer as juniors into a bachelor's degree program.

Students who have already chosen the university to which they plan to transfer should consult that institution's catalog or department advisor and an SVCC counselor or academic advisor in planning their program. Individualized articulation sheets for some universities are available in the counseling office.
