Associate of Arts Degree with HIT Coursework Transfer to MSU Billings
The Associate of Arts with articulated coursework in Health Information Technology is designed for students interested in a baccalaureate degree in Health Administration at Montana State University Billings.
The Associate of Arts (AA) includes education across academic disciplines. Focusing on integration of information while increasing a student’s employability, the AA is designed for transferability to a baccalaureate program.
To receive the AA degree, the following requirements must be completed:
Courses taken to fulfill one specific requirement, including courses in the Concentration or Elective blocks, may not be used to fulfill another specific requirement; thus, a course taken to fulfill the Cultural Diversity requirement in the Montana University System Core may not be used as an Elective.
