B.A.S. Accounting with International Accounting

Applications are still being accepted for the Fall 2020 cohort, and applications will be reviewed on the first of each month! Apply online before all spots are filled.

Requirements for Admissions

A.A.S.-T degrees in Business, Accounting and/or Real Estate offer the best preparation for the AIA B.A.S. degree. However, any two-year degree, earned with a 2.0 or better GPA, is sufficient.

If you have completed most, but not all, of the prerequisites, you can still explore starting the program this fall. Consideration may be given to applicants who have the majority of their prerequisites completed. Contact the B.A.S. program advisor to see if you are eligible to apply.

Competitive Admissions

There are just 30 spaces available in the AIA B.A.S. program each year. North expects that the number of qualified applicants will exceed the number of available enrollment spaces, so please apply early.

How to Apply

The online application will be available beginning in January for the upcoming fall quarter start date. Applications submitted by March 23rd for the upcoming fall quarter will receive priority consideration. Additional deadlines will be provided if spaces are still available in the program. If you have questions about the application or application deadline, please contact the B.A.S. program at (206) 934-7794, or email
