The purpose of the Memorandum of Understanding between ATU and PCCUA is to facilitate the admission and transfer of eligible PCCUA students into approved baccalaureate degree programs at ATU. The document may be access by clicking ATU/PCCUA MOU.
PCCUA also has agreements with ATU for the specific degrees outlined below:
The Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) is an online Accelerated Degree Program (ADP) offering a flexible degree completion path addressing the unique needs of particular target groups. Our agreement is for the Bachelor of Professional Studies in Applied Leadership. ATU's accelerated delivery format is designed to ease the financial, time, and geographic constraints adults face in completing a baccalaureate program. Students complete the necessary hours for the degree within a convenient yet directed scheduling format under the guidance of advisors who understand the unique needs of the adult learner.
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Leadership degree will provide students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in any discipline a seamless transition to the online B.A.S. degree. ATU's stackable education sequence enhances an individual's academic qualifications and increases potential career upward mobility. The degree design maximizes earned hours; a student with an A.A.S. degree must complete 66 hours to earn the B.A.S. degree (26 hours General Education/40 hours Degree Requirements). To maximize credentialing opportunities, a student in the B.A.S. program may earn the Certificate in Professional Leadership by completing the first 15 hours of the program.
