Business womanThe Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management (BAS-SM) is an open access program available to students who have successfully completed an associate degree and it is available completely online starting spring 2020. The BAS-SM prepares graduates for supervisory and management roles and positions in a variety of industries. The upper-level coursework includes applied management practices, leadership development, finance, and basic human relations practice that prepares students for supervisory and management opportunities within their technical fields.

Admissions requirements for the BAS-SM program:

  • Applicants must complete an Application for Admission and identify that they are seeking entry into the bachelor’s degree program.
  • Applicants for the BAS-SM program must have earned an Associate in Science or Associate in Arts degree from a regionally accredited institution.
  • Associate degrees in unrelated fields will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
  • Applicants must provide official transcripts from all previous educational institutions attended.
  • International students must have their transcripts evaluated by a recognized international transcript evaluation service.
  • College or university transfer applicants must have at least 60 college credit hours, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale in relevant transfer courses that apply toward the BAS degree.

Preparing for admission

The BAS-SM is a 120-credit hour program consisting of 36 hours of general education courses, 42 credit hours of lower-level specialized courses, and 42 hours of upper-level courses in supervision and management.

Students who have an Associate in Arts degree may articulate into the BAS-SM program. They will transfer 60 hours that include 36 hours of general education courses. Students must complete an additional 18 hours of lower-level specialization courses (such as business, finance, management, computers, health care, or public service) and 42 hours of upper-level courses.

For students with an existing Associate in Science or equivalent degree in a business-related, health-related, or public service-related program, 60 hours would articulate from the associate degree with most students having completed 18 credit hours of general education courses and 42 hours of lower-level specialized courses. These students would complete an additional 18 credit hours of general education courses and 42 credit hours of upper-level courses.
