A.A.S., Business Administration Technology: Hospitality Option B.T., Applied Technology

What it takes to complete a degree in Applied Technology from RSU.

  • You must complete at least 120 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 60 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, minor, or free elective credit.
  • A minor is 18 hours from an academic area of your choice and it is designed to complement your major. Your advisor will help you determine your minor and the classes required to complete it.
  • 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 120 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, major or minor credit will qualify as free elective credit, up to 60 hours. If you have completed more than 60 hours at the associate degree level, all courses will transfer to RSU, but only 60 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.
