Computer Information Systems and Security - BAS

NOTE: BAS degrees are designed for students who have earned credit at another institution in an approved technical field, and therefore assume at least 18 semester hours in a technical field will be transferred. Technical field courses must be completed prior to matriculating at OLLU.

Required technical field transfer hours 18-30 hours

Maximum transferable hours from a community college 72 hours

Since students must transfer technical field courses for the BAS degree, it is likely that additional credit hours will also be transferred. The courses that are most likely to have been earned at another institution are listed in Years One and Two below. Actual course sequences will vary, depending on courses transferred.
