Overview of BAS-AL Program
The target population for the Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Leadership (BAS-AL) is adult learners who may have completed some college, however, have been unable to complete a bachelor’s degree, as well as those who wish to transfer from a community college (or other institution). These include students who have been previously enrolled at UTC, transfer students from community colleges or other universities, and working adults who have minimal college experience, but need a flexible option to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Admission (Readmission) Process
Former students in good standing who have not enrolled in UTC courses for one or more semesters (excluding the summer) must apply for readmission. If they have attended another college or university during their absence, they must also meet the requirements for admission to the University as transfer students, except that no application fee is required for readmission. Students who have been suspended or dismissed from the University should review the "Enrolling at UTC: Petition and Appeals" section of the current Undergraduate Catalog for readmission information (link: Course Catalogs).
Transfer Student Admissions Process
Applicants for admission as degree-seeking students who have been registered at another college or university are classified as transfer students. They must submit to the Undergraduate Admission Office an official high school transcript showing graduation, type of diploma, and complete official transcripts from each previously attended college or university.
For admission as a transfer student, an applicant must have pursued courses appropriate to the curriculum at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, must be classified as in good standing and eligible to return to the last institution, and must meet The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's continuation standards. Grades for all previous coursework determine eligibility for admission. An applicant who graduated from high school in 1989 or after and are transferring fewer than 60 hours of semester credit must also meet the minimum high school unit requirements. An applicant who transfers fewer than 12 hours of college-level non-developmental coursework must meet the minimum requirements for new first-year students. Refer to the "Enrolling at UTC: Required High School Courses" section of the current Undergraduate Catalog for high school unit and placement exam requirements (link: Course Catalogs).
An applicant whose records do not meet the admission standards will be denied admission unless, in the opinion of the Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Services & Student Success, the applicant can be admitted. If admitted, the student will be required to remove high school unit deficiencies within the first 30 hours of enrollment at UTC. Credits earned in such courses will apply toward any degree requirements, including general education, major or elective requirements, or the 120-hour graduation requirement.
- Senior-level (e.g., 3000-4000 level) credit is not awarded for courses completed at a two-year institution.
- Transfer students from senior institutions must complete at least 25% of the minimum semester hours required for the degree under the direction of UTC faculty
- Transfer students from two-year institutions must complete a minimum of 60 semester hours at a senior institution.
