Students who earn a workforce degree at Austin Community College now have the option to continue their studies and earn a bachelor’s degree in business without transferring to a university campus.
The Associate of Applied Science to Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science Degree Program allows students who complete an A.A.S. degree at ACC to seamlessly transition to a bachelor of applied arts and science (B.A.A.S.) degree in business at Concordia University Texas. The program is available beginning fall 2017.
ACC students who have completed or have almost completed their two-year A.A.S degree can apply for automatic admission to the B.A.A.S. program. They spend a third year at ACC fulfilling Texas core curriculum requirements. During their fourth year they take Concordia courses taught by the university’s instructors on ACC campuses. The Concordia courses are block-scheduled, meaning classes are grouped and scheduled together at a certain time, such as morning, evening, or weekends. Online options also will be offered.
Students in the program pay ACC tuition for the first three years of the program, and pay Concordia’s tuition the final year. Financial aid and payment plans are offered all four years of the program.
