Associate of Science Degree
Courses for this Program

About the Program

The Associate of Science (AS) degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Oregon Tech. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate. The curriculum allows for 46 core credits within the major area. By completing all appropriate credits (including electives), students will fulfill required lower division coursework for transfer to Oregon Tech.

If students transfer before completing this degree or transfer in a major not covered by prior agreements, courses will be evaluated individually toward the transfer requirements of the college of their choice. Students are advised to obtain written approval from Oregon Tech to guarantee their catalog of transfer for three years. Courses in this program may also be applied to Oregon Tech's Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management, Administration Option. See a Business Advisor for more information.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program leaning outcomes for business programs are:

Business Ethics: Demonstrate knowledge of ethical, legal, and socially responsible business behavior, while maintaining high levels of personal and professional integrity in today's rapidly changing multi-cultural, team-oriented business environment.

Communication/Information Literacy: Develop and deliver professional oral and written communications (using technology) that are appropriate to the topic, audience, and situation.

Critical Evaluation/Decision Making: Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills by identifying, understanding, and applying basic theories, terminology, and practices related to each functional area of business.

Interpersonal Skills: Develop the interpersonal ("soft") skills necessary to build and maintain effective working relationships with internal and external business stakeholders.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In
order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over four years old must be reviewed
and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements.

Graduation Requirements

The Associate of Science degree will be awarded to students who complete all credits in this program
with a grade of “C” or better. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only.
