International Students
B.A.S. International Business
Program Format and Class Schedule

The International Business Bachelor of Applied Science program offers two different program formats for students.

Hybrid Program
In the hybrid program, International Business upper-division (IB) BAS courses are offered in the evenings and require students to be on campus twice per week. At the time of application and admission, students can elect to join the hybrid program. Hybrid classes are a blend of in-person instruction and online instruction, which allows students valuable face-to-face time with an instructor, but limits the on-campus meeting time for each class. The hybrid program meets on the same two nights per week for the entire academic year. The first year of the program generally meets on Monday and Wednesday evenings and the second year of the program generally meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. IB courses begin at 5:30 p.m. and end by 8:50 p.m. Class schedules are subject to change, but the IB program works to maintain a predictable class times and schedule. Classes are held at North Seattle College. If a student still needs general education and/or additional elective courses, these can be completed in whatever way is best for the student's schedule. Some students may prefer to take courses online; others may wish to take them during evenings or in the summer quarter, etc. It is recommended that those courses be taken through North Seattle College, but if the student has need to take the courses elsewhere and their funding will cover it, we will support them in doing so.

Fully Online Program
In the fully online program, all IB BAS upper division courses are offered fully online. Online students will not be required to attend campus for classwork or orientation. It is preferred students attend the in-person orientation if possible, but they can also complete an online orientation option if necessary. If a student still needs general education and/or additional elective courses, these can be completed in whatever way is best for the student's schedule. Some students may prefer to take courses online; others may wish to take them during evenings or in the summer quarter, etc. It is recommended that those courses be taken through North Seattle College, but if the student has need to take the courses elsewhere and their funding will cover it, we will support them in doing so. The online program is an affordable bachelor's degree option for any domestic student regardless of location. All domestic students pay resident in-state tuition at the Seattle Colleges.

Part-time or Full-time
Both hybrid and fully online programs have the option to take the program full time (12-18 credits per quarter) or part-time (approximately 10 credits per quarter). Most students need 2-3 years to complete if they have 100 or less credits transferring and work full time, especially if they still need to complete their prerequisites. Students with more than 100 credits transferring in OR who work less than full time may be able to complete in 2 years.

Next Steps
The number of credits transferring in is determined by official transcript evaluation which takes up to 8 weeks to complete once all of your documents are submitted. For an unofficial transcript evaluation and to discuss the program with an advisor, schedule an appointment with BAS Program Advisor Cate O’dahl (carol.odahl@seattlecolleges.edu) or call 206-934-7794.
