Associate of Science Degree with Business Coursework Transfer to MSU Bozeman

This Associate of Science degree with a Program of Study in Business is designed for students planning to apply to the MSU Bozeman Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship (JJCBE). Upon its completion, students desiring a Bachelor of Science in Marketing, Management, Finance, or Accounting are conditionally eligible for application to JJCBE.

NOTE:  This program is undergoing significant change. Please see your advisor.

NOTE: Completion of this program of study does not guarantee admission into JJCBE. Students must:

  • Establish a GPA by taking at least one course with MSU Bozeman, completing the course(s) with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Score at least a “3” on the ACT Workkeys Written Exam

The Associate of Science (AS) Degree includes education in specific knowledge areas, most typically in math and natural sciences.  Focusing on integration of information while increasing a student’s employability, the AS is designed for transferability to a baccalaureate program.

To receive the AS degree, the following requirements must be completed:

Montana University System Core Requirements31
Computer Skills/Usage requirement3
Coursework in Math and Science9
Final cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0
