Associate in Business DTA/MRP

Degree Requirements

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.
