Business Administration (transfer agreement) Major (Bachelor of Business Administration)

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree must have been earned after May 2006 for Western Technical College (WTC) graduates. Students may not begin these specifically-articulated transfer programs or be considered a student in these programs until the AAS degree has been completed and documented on the technical college transcript. A student who did not complete the AAS degree could instead complete the requirements of the general major, and any completed courses of the AAS would count toward the major, but in order to come into this articulated transfer agreement program, the AAS must be completed prior to transfer to Viterbo. The student cannot be dually enrolled.  

  • Core curriculum and mission seminars (35-43 credits) – see core curriculum section of catalog
  • Major requirements (26-42 credits) – see below
  • Final degree requirements – a minimum of 120 college level credits, minimum of 40 credits at the 300/400 level

Transfer courses and waivers and/or substitutions could modify the required credit total in the core curriculum and major.
