Transfer Students

As a transfer student considering the BSBA Management through the App State Online program, it is important that you are aware of the structure of the program and the standards and policies in the Walker College of Business (WCOB) that can affect progress in the program. Please consider carefully the following information.

Required courses are not offered every semester. It is very important that App State Online students work with the business advisor at the beginning of the program to develop a long term plan based on course offerings. While the plan can be changed, there is no guarantee that students can find the courses they want or need to take in a given term if they change the plan. 

Students who enter a BSBA Management cohort through the App State Online program are held to the same standards and policies as all ASU students. To maintain accreditation, WCOB standards and policies are applied consistently to all business students across all program locations.
