This degree is designed to give students greater flexibility in completing an A.A.S. degree while assuring a business focus within the program. The discipline-specific electives may be earned by taking appropriate courses as indicated or by articulating credits earned in a diploma program at a TN College of Applied Technology (formerly known as Tennessee Technology Center).  Students should seek assistance from their business faculty advisor to choose appropriate electives.

UPDATE: Effective, October 2014, the Tennessee Board of Regents placed a moratorium on the transference of TCAT articulation block credit. Only those students who were enrolled in Fall 2014 are eligible to receive the articulated credit as long as they maintain continuous enrollment at Roane State (excluding summer terms). Students seeking credit for TCAT courses should consult with their faculty advisor regarding prior learning credit.
