The Business Administration program prepares students in the core areas of accounting, communication, economics, and math while allowing flexibility to focus on other business areas such as entrepreneurship, marketing, customer service and leadership with the goal of continuing on to successfully complete a bachelor's degree in business at Southern Oregon University.
The Associate of Science degree (Business Administration) has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University (SOU) in Ashland. The degree is fully articulated with SOU’s business program and allows you to transfer directly as a junior with no loss of credit.
You are advised to contact the School of Business at SOU early in the first year of your AS program to be advised about additional requirements and procedures for admission to the school or program. If you transfer before completing the AS degree, your courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements at SOU.

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.
