Free up time for life’s other priorities by taking classes when you want, where you want. Up to 84 semester hours may be transferred from an approved/accredited institution, so you may be only 36 online semester hours from receiving your BAAS degree!

The BAAS degree program also differs because it accepts many types of workforce credits, Technical Training, military, and work experience. These occupationally-specific credits are earned by community college students who are working toward, or have completed, an Associate in Applied Sciences (AAS) degree. Students also earn these types of credits in technical institutions or in the military. While there are many degree programs like the BAAS program in the state of Texas we are one of the few that has an industrially focused curriculum. Students with a background in manufacturing, construction, safety or other related technical backgrounds including Engineering are prime candidates’ to complete their degree completely online.
