Degree Required for Admissions
A.A.S.-T degrees in Business, Accounting and/or Real Estate offer the best preparation for the RCPM 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 manager to see if you are eligible to apply.
There are just 30 spaces available in the RCPM 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 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 BAS-Info@seattlecolleges.edu.
