Bachelor of Applied Science


If you have an Associate of Applied Science degree and want to advance in your career, the new Bachelor of Applied Science from Indiana University can help you achieve your goals.

To get your B.A.S., you transfer 60 to 64 credit hours from your A.A.S. to Indiana University. You then complete 60 credit hours of 300- and 400-level courses from IU.

The B.A.S. is jointly offered by the Indiana University campuses in Gary (IU Northwest), Kokomo (IU Kokomo), New Albany (IU Southeast), Richmond (IU East), and South Bend (IU South Bend). You can complete your degree requirements online, on campus, or through a combination of online and on-campus courses. 

Here’s how the degree program works: you enroll at one of the participating campuses, and this campus becomes your home campus, or campus of enrollment. You may then register for classes offered by your home campus or by any of other participating campuses. Your home campus will apply the credits you earn toward your B.A.S.

When you have completed all degree requirements, you receive a high-quality IU degree from your home campus. The placement office on your home campus will help you find appropriate employment.
