BAS Four-Year Degree Plan

This program is designed for students who are currently enrolled at a two-year institution pursuing an associate’s degree. Therefore, many of the course requirements for this degree are fulfilled as you complete course work for your associate’s degree.

Four-year sample schedule

The following sample course of study allows for the following:

  • Two-year institutional credits, which must include completion of AA or AS requirements (100-200 level courses) = 84-85 hours
  • Missouri State credits (300+ level courses) = 40 (35 in agriculture and three in general education)
  • Maintains student as full-time enrollee of one institution or the other to streamline financial aid

This plan is a recommended course schedule. Your schedule may vary depending on course availability and electives. A projected course offering list is provided on the course rotation page. Contact your advisor to develop a program of study that fulfills program requirements and prepares you for your career.

The following degree plan is based on the general education program instituted in fall 2014. For the previous general education requirements, please access these Student Transition Resources.
