The Saint Leo University B.A.S. degree is available only for students with associate of science (A.S.) or associate of applied science (A.A.S.) degrees in a science or technical field, and is not available for students with A.S. or A.A.S. degrees in a major for which Saint Leo University offers a B.A. or B.S. degree. At the completion of the B.A.S., students will have applied skills and a liberal education and the business skills to gain promotion or become managers in the workplace or military. The B.A.S. degree requires that the holder of the A.S. or A.A.S. degree have in his or her degree at least 60 total hours of credits in the following two areas: 42-45 hours of related science or technical credits (the courses must be in the same general area, e.g., electronics, avionics, etc.) and 15-18 hours of general education. Any non-area-related or non-general-education courses are not transferable toward the degree and must be replaced by business and/or general education courses from Saint Leo University. Prospective students should be aware that Saint Leo University will allow only 64 credits to be transferred from a community college (see the Transfer Students section). This program is offered at Continuing Education Centers only.
* These are the courses that would be taken at Saint Leo University to satisfy the requirements. Courses being transferred from community colleges must meet the equivalency requirements to replace these courses.
