4. Additional courses/ credit hours may be necessary to make up the difference toward the minimum 126 hours required for the degree program.
• Approximately 60-63 hours will be transferred in from the Associate Degree. This may include some General Education core and business classes as well as technical courses. These technical courses will be at the 1000-2000 level and credit will be counted under Additional Courses.
