BAS Majors require a minimum of 121 credit hours to graduate. No more than 90 hours of these hours may be earned at a community college.  Community college transfer students must earn at least 25% of their hours from MUW.  MUW does not award credit for technical or vocational courses except in the B.A.S program.

This curriculum sheet is a sample and is intended to be a tentative guideline for the order in which courses should be taken to fulfill the requirements of the major.
