All Bachelor of Applied Studies (BAS) students must complete a set of Core general education requirements in order to graduate. If you haven’t satisfied the Core requirements with your previous transfer credit, you will need to satisfy them in order to graduate from the BAS degree program.**
Only specific, approved courses may be used to satisfy the Core Requirements, and most can only be satisfied with lower-level courses.
