Office Administration & Computer Applications


Office Administration and Computer Applications (Associate of Applied Science) 

Students who complete this 60-credit hour degree receive instruction in computer courses that teach word processing, spreadsheets, and database. In addition, students take general office and general education courses to complete this degree.

This degree is designed for those seeking employment and not planning to continue formal study in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. Consequently, some courses in this program will not transfer to all senior institutions. Therefore, students who do plan to attend a four-year college are strongly advised to correspond with the college to which they plan to attend to confirm which courses will transfer.

In the Business Division curricula, courses prerequisite to another class require a minimum grade of C in order to advance to the next course.
