Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The following procedures apply to students who are completing an Associate of Applied Science at CMC or another institution, who wish to pursue a BAS degree at CMC:

  • Transfer Students: must have completed an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in a specific discipline from a regionally accredited institution with 60 credits minimum. An earned AAS degree which meets this criterion will be awarded as block transfer credits.
  • Transfer Students: any additional course which meets the lower-division Program Qualification courses may also count, if accepted upon transfer. Any other course taken at upper-division, if earned through an accredited four-year program, may also count, if accepted upon transfer including BAS Upper-Division Requirements or other general education courses.
  • All Students: must complete all Program Qualification courses listed below before no more than 15 credits of Upper-Division Requirements.
  • All Students: to graduate, students must have a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 (“C” average)

The Associate of Applied Science degree course requirements for lower-division courses will be awarded as block credit transfer credits (60 credits minimum). Please work with a CMC advisor on course selection to fulfill degree requirements in order to move seamlessly from the AAS into the BAS program.

The Bachelor of Applied Science degree is offered at all Colorado Mountain College locations. However, not all courses are offered in a live mode at all campuses. Please contact a campus counselor or academic advisor at the preferred campus for more information.
