Bachelor of Applied Science

What is the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree?

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree is limited to students with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree. The degree allows the transfer of an accredited (AAS) degree into a baccalaureate degree, counting the AAS credits much as credits in a major are counted.

Students who have earned an AAS degree from a regionally accredited institution can enroll at MSU Billings to complete General Requirements and take upper division credits in areas of study which will complement their AAS credits already earned. The program is designed for students who want to build upon the technical strengths of their AAS degree. There are a variety of options for completing the BAS degree.

The concentration must include at least 30 credits of course work, and it must have at least 15 credits from one discipline.
