Business Administration, Pre-Business Studies 2+2 to WVU, A.A.S.

Transfer to West Virginia University

Major Code: 358

Note: The “2+2” term is used to refer to a transfer agreement through which a student completes an Associate degree at WVNCC and finishes a Bachelor’s degree at another institution. Because of individual student factors, part-time or full-time status, need for developmental education coursework, scheduling and availability of courses, or other factors, all students may not be able to complete this degree in two (Associate’s) or four (Bachelor’s) years. The term “2+2” does not imply a guarantee that a student will be able to complete all requirements in four years.

This option is designed for students preparing for transfer to West Virginia University to complete work on Baccalaureate of Science degrees in Business. Students should consult with their advisor regarding requirements. In addition to the overall competencies of the Business Administration program, upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to transfer into a baccalaureate program.

Students completing this proposed pathway may choose to major within one of the following College of Business and Economics fields once they transfer to WVU: Accounting; Management; Economics; Finance; General Business; Hospitality & Tourism Management; Management Information Systems; Marketing; Entrepreneurship and Innovation; or Global Supply Chain Management. To be admitted to the College of Business and Economics at WVU, students must have an overall GPA of 2.5.

WVU has additional requirements for certain courses to be taken in the summer semesters prior to transfer. Therefore, WVNCC recommends that students contact WVU’s College of Business and Economics ( for recommended sequences of courses for each undergraduate major early in their program of study and/or contact the Office of Undergraduate Education at WVU before transfer.
