60 credits

Students complete an Associate of Science in Business by taking foundational courses in the business field. This option permits students who meet the necessary requirements to either graduate with an Associate of Science degree or continue toward a Bachelor of Science degree in Business.

Admission

Students may declare an Associate of Science in Business upon admission to Presentation College. New students entering on probation may declare the Associate of Science in Business degree, but will not be admitted to the program until they have completed the Success Academy requirements.

A growth plan will be developed for students who fail to maintain a minimum cumulative 2.50 GPA in their business courses in any given semester. This signed growth plan will be provided to the students as well as copied in their official academic file. This growth plan will address:

  1. The process the students will take to increase their GPA to meet graduation requirements.
  2. The length of time the student has to increase their GPA to meet graduation requirements.
