This Associate in Applied Science-T (AAS-T) is a 92 credit professional technical degree with a core of general education courses commonly accepted in transfer (25 credits) as well as professional technical courses (65 credits). This degree is accepted at South Seattle Community college as a direct transfer degree into their Bachelor’s of Applied Science (BAS) Degree in Hospitality Management.

Students seeking to transfer to degree programs other than those specifically designed for the AAS-T should consider the Associate of Arts or the Associate of Science degree, which are specifically designed for transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
