Business Transfer to Southern Oregon University

2020-21 Business Transfer to SOU (PDF)*

Associate of Science Degree
Courses for this Program

About the Program

The Associate of Science degree (Business) has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University (SOU). The degree is articulated with SOU’s Business program. The program offers an excellent balance of business and general education courses that support advanced study in the field of business. 

Students should contact the SOU School of Business early in the first year of the program to be advised about additional requirements and procedures for admission to the school or program. Students transferring to SOU will be required to complete BA100 at SOU during the first quarter.

Students should be aware that if they transfer before completing this degree, courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements in effect at SOU.


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 colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies and the Business Technology Department chair’s approval. In order to ensure coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward course requirements.
