Q. What are the admission requirements for the B.A.B.A.?
Successful completion of an A.A. or A.S. degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.50.
Q. How long will it take to complete the program?
The cohort schedule is designed so that the student will be able to complete the degree program in three years. However, it is easily possible to complete the program within two years or less. Students who wish to progress faster can take more classes than those required for the cohort schedule every semester, take summer courses, and/or take Rutgers University non-business electives that are offered in the fall and spring. Students should work closely with their academic advisors to ensure all requirements are met.
Q. How many credit hours are required to complete the program?
Students will complete 60 Rutgers University credits beyond their associate degree, and a minimum of 120 credits total to satisfy graduation requirements.
Q. When is enrollment for the B.A.B.A. program?
Students can be admitted in either the fall or spring. However, those students who prefer to be a part of the three year cohort are recommended to start in the fall. What courses should have I completed during the course of my associate degree program? Students interested in the B.A.B.A. program should complete the following courses during the course of their associate degree: Micro and Macroeconomics, Financial Accounting, Statistics, Business Computing, Business Law, and Calculus.* We strongly encourage students to speak to a Rutgers representative before registering for the B.A.B.A. program.
Q. Will I have to go to a Rutgers campus to take classes?
All coursework for the B.A.B.A. will be offered at the community college campuses where you obtained your associate degree.
*Students who cannot fit Calculus neatly into their associate degree program should at least complete the necessary prerequisites for Calculus. If applicants do not successfully complete Calculus during the course of their associate degree program, they should be prepared to take Calculus online with Rutgers University.
