NOTES for Associate in Science Degree

It is recommended that students take ECON 130 or ECON 131 as one of their Social Science courses in the AS degree as both ECON 130 and ECON 131 are needed for students transferring to four-year business programs. Additional recommendations are that students take ENG 100 for written communication and SP 151 for oral communication.

By selecting BUSN 123, Word Processing for Business, and completing one additional course, BUSN 170, Records and Information Management, you will earn the Certificate of Competence in Business Technology.

You cannot use ACC 124 as a 100-level elective if taking ACC 201 for Certificate of Achievement or Associate in Science Degree.

ACC 124 and ACC 125 together are equivalent to ACC 201; therefore, ACC 124 is half of the content of ACC 201.
