Length of Program: A full-time student may complete this program in four semesters.

Purpose: The Associate in Arts and Science Degree in Business Administration is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program in Business Administration, Accounting, Business Information Systems, Economics, Finance, Marketing, or Management.

Admission Requirements: In addition to the admission requirements established by the College, entry into this program requires completion of four units of high school English, three units of college preparatory mathematics, one unit of Laboratory Science, and one unit of Social Studies. If you meet the general admission requirements, a counselor will discuss with you the strengths and weaknesses of your academic background and your strengths and weaknesses are revealed by an appropriate placement test. You may correct any deficiencies in academic preparation in the College's Developmental Studies program.

Program Description: This program requires courses in the humanities, natural sciences and social sciences, in addition to the Principles of Economics, Principles of Accounting, and Business Statistics, usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate Business program. Courses should be selected to satisfy the requirements of the senior college or university to which you plan to transfer. You are urged to familiarize yourself with the college or university to which transfer is contemplated. A DCC counselor will help you in the initial planning of your program. You will also be assigned an academic advisor in the Business Department who will assist you in course selections at Danville Community College. In order to prepare for junior class standing at a four-year college or university, you must formally complete a program at the community college which is comparable in length and course content to the first two years of the program at the four-year institution. Upon satisfactory completion of this program at DCC, you will be awarded the Associate in Arts and Science Degree (AA&S) in Business Administration.

Program Requirements: To receive the Associate in Arts and Science Degree in Business Administration, you must complete a minimum of 61 credits with a grade point average of 2.00 or better. The following outline represents a typical order of courses taken by full-time day students. Part-time and/or evening students my take courses in any desired sequence, except for sequence courses or others requiring prerequisites.
