Associate in Business (Transfer)
Many job opportunities require education beyond a two-year degree. Starting with the Associate in Business (Transfer) program provides the flexibility to learn the basics in business related fields, while taking electives that align with a four-year program. Learning from faculty with decades of real-world experience provides a foundation of practical skills that will help you at the next level.
Depending on your path, SC4 has agreements in place with four-year institutions that allow students to transfer a significant number of credits towards a bachelor’s degree – essentially completing year three at SC4 before transferring. Three such programs are in place with Northwood University, Siena Heights University and Walsh College.
