  1. The AA degree program requires 60 units, whereas the certificate requires 28-29 units.
  2. The additional 30 units required to earn the AA degree are included in the following courses:
    1. ECON 1 or ECON 10
    2. BUSN 95 and BUSN 96; both are work experience courses
    3. The remaining units for the AA are earned in elective courses. Recommended electives for this program are
      1. BUSN 20: International Business
      2. BUSN 30: Business Ethics and Society
      3. BUSN 52: Business Communications
      4. BUSN 60: Consumer Finance and Ownership
      5. BUSN 81: Intro to Investments
      6. CIS 54: Excel: Intro to Spreadsheets

The AA degree prepares students intending to transfer by fulfilling typical lower-division requirements at four-year transfer institutions.  It is essential that students refer to the catalogs of the prospective transfer institution and consult a transfer counselor to obtain current transferability requirements.
