The Bachelor of Science in Technology (BST) is customizable and allows you to build on prior credit to earn a bachelor’s degree with a career-oriented emphasis. The degree is designed in collaboration with academic advisors.

The BST is made up of three parts: transfer credits, general education courses, and a custom concentration.

*Transfer credits must be either be from a regionally accredited college/university OR military credit recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE).

An AAS/AS degree, applied coursework or military training can serve as the base of a BST. Upon this base, a concentration is built. This concentration may include any combination of courses as long as the combination is educationally sound and has a cohesive theme supporting a career goal. The concentration must include at least 30 credits, including at least 18 upper-level credits.
