Associate in Business DTA/MRP
The Associate in Business degree is designed as a Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA)/Major Related Program (MRP) for transfer with junior standing to baccalaureate institutions. It is generally pursued by students who plan to transfer to a four-year university as a business major after completing their first two years at Peninsula College. The degree indicates that a student has completed a two-year business program, which may be of value in career or lifetime goals. Students should check specific requirements of their intended transfer institution, including overall minimum GPA, a higher GPA in a selected subset of courses or a specific minimum grade in one or more courses such as math or English.
To qualify for an Associate in Business Degree you must complete a minimum of 90 credits in courses numbered 100 or 25 credits based on the requirements of the specific discipline at the baccalaureate institution the student plans to attend.
- PHYS& 114L, 115L, 116L or PHYS& 221L, 222L, 223L
- CHEM& 121L required for Engineering majors; other majors should select 5 credits of science based on advising
- MATH& 163 or MATH& 146
- The remaining 35 credits should be planned with the help of an advisor based on the requirements of the specific discipline at the baccalaureate institution the student selects to attend.
- For engineering disciplines, these remaining 35 credits should include a design component consistent with ABET above, with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better.
