Additional Notes to Keep in Mind

  • The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) is a baccalaureate degree with a major in a technical area with substantial applied content. When a student completes a technical program at a sending college, that technical program will transfer toward completion of the BAS degree, often in accordance with articulation agreements between participating colleges and universities. A BAS program can be designed to incorporate applied content through various pathways, including collaboration with a community or technical college with block transfer of credits, transfer of credits on a course-by-course basis, or credits for experiential learning.

  • Formal articulation agreements are advisable when collaboration involves articulation of programs. Search for existing BAS articulation agreements for specific information.

  • Whenever feasible, the design of a BAS program should take advantage of opportunities for flexible sequencing of courses and demonstrated competencies.
