See program requirement sheet. 

The Business Management Associate of Technical Arts (ATA) Degree is designed for students who want to update existing knowledge and skills and/or acquire up-to-date technical and managerial skills. This degree is intended to provide each student with the opportunity to develop a program that will best meet his/her needs and interests. The degree requires students to work with a Business Management adviser to select those courses which will help students achieve their educational and career goals. Many courses are available online.

The program includes a number of courses (each indicated with an asterisk *) that may transfer to business administration programs at most four-year colleges and universities. Students with a potential goal of transfer should take these courses and work closely with an adviser to maximize transfer possibilities.

Credit/Grade Requirements This ATA degree requires successful completion of a minimum of 90 credits as outlined. A minimum of 30 credits or one-third of the required credits, whichever is less, must be earned at Edmonds Community College. Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all college-level courses.

Cultural Diversity Requirement All students earning degrees and certificates of 45 credits or more must meet a cultural diversity (CD) requirement by completing courses marked as “CD” on the requirement sheet and/or “Meets Cultural Diversity Requirement” in the quarterly class schedule. Those courses may also be used to fulfill other requirements of the degree or certificate.

Graduation Application A completed Graduation Application form must be submitted to Enrollment Services by the 10th day of the quarter in which the student expects to graduate. Forms are available online or at Enrollment Services located in Lynnwood Hall.

Students are advised to:

  • Plan their schedule several quarters in advance in order to accommodate courses that are offered only once or twice a year,
  • Review the college catalog for required course prerequisites and include these in schedule planning, and
  • Communicate with a faculty adviser.
