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.
