Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Program FAQs

1. Q.  What can I do with a BAS degree?

A. Whatever your technical area of expertise, this degree will help prepare you to be a manager or supervisor within your field.  For example, if you have an AAS in electronics technology, earning a BAS in Supervision and Management can provide you with the knowledge needed to advance into a maintenance manager’s position or operate your own electrical contractor business.

2. Q.  Why should I be interested in the BAS program?

A.   Organizations and businesses are seeking skilled managers and supervisors. Pursuing a bachelor’s degree with an emphasis in business management and supervision can help those in the job market attain those skills.  In addition, current employees who earned an AAS or AAT degree oftentimes find themselves in need of a bachelor’s degree in order to advance or get a desired promotion.  Traditionally, bachelor degrees make students more marketable, and oftentimes they open doors to higher earning potential.

3. Q.  Will all my AAS/AAT course credits transfer?

A. Students discover that most of their AAS/AAT course credits will not transfer into a traditional Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree.  However, with GMC’s BAS degrees, most courses will transfer, and in many cases, students find that all courses transfer. GMC does a thorough review of the AAS/AAT coursework and works in conjunction with experts in those fields from accredited technical colleges to make sure that every course that can transfer, in fact, does. Additionally, GMC currently maintains twenty transfer agreements with technical colleges in order to facilitate a smooth transfer of academic credits between institutions. Click here to learn more about these transfer agreements. With that being said, students may be required to complete some additional courses to meet GMC's degree requirements.

4. Q.   If I have an AAS/AAT degree, how long will it take to complete the BAS degree?

A. As with all degree programs, this varies; however, five to six quarters if full-time. The number of quarters will vary based upon the number of your AAS/AAT course credits that transfer into the degree program, as well as how many courses students wish to take per term.

5. Q.   What are the admission requirements to get into this program?

A. Students seeking admission into the BAS program must meet the “Minimum Requirements for Regular Freshman Admission” described in the GMC Catalog and are subject to the placement testing guidelines (unless the student has already completed a degree at the Associate degree level or above).

6. Q.  Is this program online or face-to-face?

A. All BAS degree programs are offered both online and face-to-face. Check with your local campus to see if the BAS program you plan to pursue is offered face-to-face.

7. Q. For which degree program am I eligible?

A. If your AAS/AAT degree is in a business related field, you would qualify for the BAS in Business Management.  The Supervision and Management degree program is designed for students who have earned an AAS or AAT degree in a technical/occupational non-business related program. The Supply Chain Management and Logistics degree program is designed for students who have earned an AAS degree in a business, computer information systems, supply chain, or logistics-related program. The BAS in Healthcare Management degree program is designed for students who have earned a healthcare related AAS degree. The Bachelor of Applied Science in Homeland Security and Emergency Management Program is designed for students having a criminal justice or emergency management related AAS degree.
