Business Transfer to Southern Oregon University

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

The Associate of Science degree (Business) has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University (SOU). The degree is articulated with SOU’s Business program. The program offers an excellent balance of business and general education courses that support advanced study in the field of business. This program can be completed entirely through online delivery.

Students should contact the SOU School of Business early in the first year of the program to be advised about additional requirements and procedures for admission to the school or program. Students transferring to SOU will be required to complete BA100 at SOU during the first quarter.

Students should be aware that if they transfer before completing this degree, courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements in effect at SOU.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for the Associate of Science Business Transfer to Southern Oregon University are:

  • Analytical Skills
    Develop critical thinking skills by applying problem-solving techniques to various areas of business.
  • Technology
    Use technology to assist with business operations.
  • Accounting Fundamentals
    Develop a comprehensive understanding of fundamental accounting concepts.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process.

Advanced Standing

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 toward course requirements.

Graduation Requirements

Students must complete a minimum of 90 term credits of lower division collegiate courses with a minimum grade of “C” or better.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate in two years as you prepare to transfer to a four-year Oregon college or university. Please meet with an advisor for any questions about alternate classes in any given term. When transferring to a four-year Oregon state college or university, one of the following options must be met as a requirement for admission:

  1. Two years of the same high school-level world language, or
  2. Two terms of college-level world language (may be first-year world language, which can be used as elective credits)

Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
