Program Acceptance Requirements
Students are required to take the college placement test to determine skill level and readiness indicated by test scores. As part of the program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined by the placement scores. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.
Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies and the Business Technology Department Chair's approval. In order to ensure coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted towards course requirements.
Program Graduation Requirements
Students must complete a minimum of 90 term credits of lower division collegiate courses with a minimum grade of C or better.
Students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or later must meet the second language requirement for admission to a four-year Oregon state college or university (see pg. 47): 1) Two years of the same high school-level second language, or 2) two terms of a college-level second language with a grade of C or better (may be first-year second language which can be used as elective credits).
Students are encouraged to view the articulation agreement and work closely with their UCC adviser in order to ensure they are taking the proper courses for the Business Administration Associates of Science—Articulated with the Business Program at Southern Oregon University option.
It is recommended that students wait until the second year of their program at UCC to take the Principles of Accounting and Principles of Economics series. A business adviser should approve any deviation from this recommendation.
