Transferring to RSU is a seamless process.
Although you can transfer to RSU at any time in your academic career, the smoothest transition occurs if you have earned or will earn an Associate’s degree from NEO.

What it takes to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Information Technology from RSU.
You must complete at least 124 credit hours to earn your degree. Of those hours, 60 must be from a university (4 year school), 40 must be junior or senior (3000/4000) level, and half of the hours in your major must be completed through RSU. You must also meet English and computer proficiency requirements. This means that you must pass English Composition I and II with a “C” or better and pass the designated computer proficiency class. Therefore, when you transfer to RSU, you will likely need to complete around 64 more hours in order to earn your four year degree.

How do my NEO A & M classes transfer to RSU? 
Every class that you have completed at NEO will transfer to RSU. Each class will count as either general education, major, or free elective credit. Free electives are extremely flexible and can be selected from any academic area. They allow you to explore your academic interests outside of your major while counting toward the 124 hours you need to graduate. Most degree programs at RSU allow for some free electives. Any class completed at NEO that does not count toward general education or major credit will qualify as free elective credit, up to 64 hours. If you have completed more than 60 hours at the associate degree level, all courses will transfer to RSU, but only 64 hours will apply to your degree. This is because you must complete 60 hours from a four-year institution to meet state requirements for graduation with a baccalaureate degree.

When can you start taking RSU classes? 
You can begin taking classes at RSU while you are completing your Associate in Science Degree at NEO. This is called dual enrollment, many students do this each semester. Consult an RSU academic advisor and a financial aid counselor to see how dual enrollment can work for you.

Program Articulaton Agreement

Northeastern Oklahoma A & M College and Rogers State University

Rogers State University (RSU) and Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO), accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, mutually enter into this articulation agreement to provide students with the educational opportunity to complete an Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration: Management Information Systems Option at Northeastern Oklahoma A & M College, which will serve as the first two years of a Business Information Technology Degree with options in Computer Network Administration, and Software Development and Multimedia at Rogers State University.

This agreement will be subject to the following provisions:

  • The student shall have graduated from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College with an Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration: Management Information Systems Option with a total of sixty (60) credit hours (excluding physical education activity courses). A maximum of sixty-four (64) semester hours from a community college may be used to meet the minimum requirements for a baccalaureate degree.
  • Provided the student follows the sequence of both the associate degree program and the baccalaureate degree program, the student transferring from an Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration: Management Information Systems Option at NEO to Business Information Technology Program at RSU will be able to complete the baccalaureate degree program in one hundred twenty-four credit hours (124), the same number of hours as required for a native student.
  • The student shall earn a minimum of sixty-four (64) semester hours at Rogers State University, excluding physical education activity courses, of which forty (40) semester hours must be in 3000/4000 level.
  • The student shall have earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale (an average grade of "C" or better) at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College.
