PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
DIRECT ENTRY INTO BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAM
Alfred State accounting graduates may enter directly into either the Business Administration BBA, Financial Planning BBA, or Technology Management BBA degree program here at Alfred State.
Students may transfer directly into one of our own BBA degree programs or to another college. To facilitate the transfer of graduates choosing to continue their education at the baccalaureate level, students are encouraged to make their intentions known to their academic adviser during their freshman year. Through the careful use of elective courses, students can realize excellent transfer credit.
The Business Department has established many formal articulation agreements with local four-year institutions, although graduates may transfer to colleges virtually anywhere. Historically, accounting graduates have done very well after leaving Alfred State, whether they enter the work force or transfer to an advanced program.
