BAS Degree

Admission to the BAS degree program is governed by the general admission policies of the University as stipulated in this Undergraduate Bulletin. Applicants to the BAS program must have successfully completed a high school diploma or Graduation Equivalency Diploma (GED/HSED) and, in the case of reentry and transfer students, must enjoy good academic standing with a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative grade point average for all prior collegiate work.
