Students who complete an AAS (Associate of Applied Science) degree from a regionally accredited U.S. postsecondary educational institution are eligible to pursue a BAS (Bachelor of Applied Science) program at an Arizona public university offering the degree. Generally, a student who has completed an AAS degree will receive at least 60 credit hours applied toward the BAS degree. Students should explore the range of BAS concentrations/specializations available and the admission criteria at each university to identify programs compatible with their AAS degrees. The BAS is designed specifically for students who have completed AAS degrees. Students admitted to the university having completed other types of Associate degrees may be admitted to the BAS program at the discretion of the admitting institution, pending an evaluation of the degree curriculum in relation to BAS requirements.
